Women's Development Cell

Vision of Women Development Cell
Shaping and nurturing the young women into responsible, mature, sensitive and balanced individuals of tomorrow.

The WDC society was started in the aegis of our ex-principal Dr.Sharda Jain under Mahila Jagran Samiti in the year 1980-81. It was due to her constant support and efforts that the college has been able to carry forward the Women Development Cell till date. Dr. Indu Anand had nurtured the concept and idea of empowering women and it has been a privilege for the college to sustain her vision till date. In an attempt to empower women, WDC has been engaged in many activities like organizing self defense camps, conducting vocational training for daughters, sisters, spouses of non teaching staff members of the college, debates, street plays, talks and other workshops on women related issues.

» 2016

WSDC in collaboration with INFORDS (India Foundation for Rural Development Studies) organized a lecture by Parry Aftab on Internet safety, cyber crime and measures to address such crimes that include cyber-bullying, trolling, cyber-terrorism, child pornography, identity-theft and so forth. Parry Aftab is one of the world's first cyber-lawyers who in her various capacities has worked tirelessly to establish best practices on the internet, extending help to nations that are grappling with the menace of cyber-crimes and educating people the world over how to be forewarned and what steps to take not only to curb such crimes but to protect oneself against the dangers lurking in cyber-space. What was initially planned as a lecture at JDMC turned out to be an extremely fruitful interactive session with Parry Aftab responding to students' questions, of which there was a flood, and giving valuable suggestions.

Parry Aftab's visit was a bonanza for students as she declared her intention to recruit students of Janki Devi College for the India Chapter of her worldwide initiative to secure internet safety for netizens. The process has already been set in motion and students are preparing to get busy designing plans to address the issue of cyber-crime and help Parry's initiative.

INFORDS also has expressed its desire to choose interns from JDMC to work with them on rural development plans. INFORDS is primarily a research organization comprising media professionals, cooperatives, NGOs, educational institutions and committed individuals dedicated to the development of India's villages. Their motto, as they put it, is, "to do something to make a difference in the lives of millions".
