Year after year we pick our student representatives through election or unanimously. These elections are one of the most important aspects of our college life and these representatives are ones who leads us in all major activities in the next one year. The very basis of a student body is to represent the students irrespective of their age, gender or stream.
Isn’t it strange that only one woman representive from a batch gets a place in the senate?
I believe with more women brought to the leadership positions, we will be setting example to the society which generations after generations have held women as second grade citizens(the situation is changing now). In our college, ‘women in engineering’ is limited to just IEEE and other than the Women’s day celebration very few women take an active part in organizing other college programs.
So here’s is the question:
1. Isn’t it high time we change this senate election rule so as to allow one girl per class in the senate?
2. Do you think there should be a Women in Engineering group in our college and not just in IEEE?
