April 15, 2014

Calicut, April 15: The Institute of Objective Studies is getting ready to study the problems and prospects of tremendous upsurge in women’s empowerment, said Dr. Mohammad Manzoor Alam, the Chairman of Institute of Objective Studies.

He was on a short visit to Calicut to discuss the proposed Centre for Women and Family Studies to be established in Calicut as a part of the decision taken in the Silver Jubilee celebrations of the Institute. He was addressing a select group of activists drawn from different areas.

Women are getting more educated while men are leaving higher education mainly for economic reasons. Migration to the Gulf countries has created tremendous social tension in Kerala and other Indian states.

Dr K M Muhammad presided over the function. Prof P Koya and Mr AA Vahab spoke on the occasion.
