Gender Discrimination is a systematic, unfavourable treatment of individuals on the basis of their gender, which denies them rights, opportunities or resources within any given society. In the TISS campus students, faculty members as well as staff members come from different regions, diverse social and cultural realities and often there are stereotypical ideas and prejudices about the 'other', which lends to insensitivity towards certain identities, beliefs, values, which in turn may lead to discriminatory behaviour and hostility in the campus. To make the Institute inclusive for all, we as TISS community need to be sensitive towards others, treat each other with due respect and dignity.
The TISS WDC in the recent time has been getting many complaints of discrimination and violence based on gender and gender non-confirming behaviours in the campus. The Committee is trying its best to address these complaints. However, there are also many instances where individuals have shared their ideas, views and experiences on the kind and nature of some of these issues within the campus with the Committee. WDC has installed boxes- “Gender Ki Baatein” at various places in the campus which are meant to gather information on these experiences and suggest ways to address some of the issues arising out of these experiences.
The Committee encourages you to write and share your experiences and suggestions with us. Your sharing will not only help to understand new forms and nature of discrimination happening in the campus but also would help WDC to develop startegies for gender awareness and sensitivity.
