About Women Science Congress

The role of women in society is vital for its progress and their contribution to the development of knowledge base and use of technology is essential if the millennium challenges are to be met. Women have made important contributions in all walks of life and made in roads into new fields of science and technology. Women constitute 50% of human resource thus contributing a major strength, the socio-economic development of the country. According to recent survey, the enrollment of Women to persue education in Science and Technology is equal to men, however only 8% of them continue their career in Science after education. There is need to narrow down this gap and utilize potentiality of women who could do wonders in Science. The participation of women is still restricted and limited because of widespread discrimination at the basic education level and lack of opportunities for pursuing science as a career, predominantly in rural areas, where they will find it difficult to participate in science owing to the formidable barriers that stand in their way such as harsh living conditions, religious traditions, negative attitude arising from the orthodox etc. In this context, the Women Science Congress provides an excellent platform to present women achievers from all walks of life to share ideas and experiences to motivate the younger women to actively participate in science to identify and find simpler solutions through Science and Technology.

Aim and Objective of the Event

A century ago, women’s role was mainly at home with the responsibility of looking after kids and old people at home and cooking and feeding them. Today, women not only do what they were doing a century ago but also landing chandrayaan on moon. Women are holding prominent positions in organizations and whole heartedly contributing to the society through science and technology. While we celebrate their achievements, the next generation needs to learn from their experience and walk the path unlocking right opportunities for themselves.

Why this conference?

In the recent past many conferences have been concentrating on the life of women in urban areas. Now is the time to think of the rural women. As Mahatma Gandhi pointed out women–be the change you want to see in the world. We would be celebrating the 150 years of birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi on sustainable development”.
