The women's forum will act as an independent body for co-ordinating various activities related to the overall welfare of the woman. It provides a platform looking at major social and economic issues from women's perspectives. The Women’s Forum has initiated a range of practical initiatives to support women in and around. The forum commenced its activities with the inauguration by Dr. Suman Alexander, Associate professor Department of commerce st. Gregarious college kottarakkara(best NSS ACTIVIST 2015).She exhorted the girls to be proud of being women. She also briefed on the role of women's forum in the campus in changing the social mentality. She urged the girls to empower themselves to stand on their feet. Following that sideshow staged by the volunteers that empathise social and psychological problems faced by the women. It also highlighted the trials and tribulations faced by eminent women like Mother Teresa, Sylvia plath, Iron Chanu Sharmila,Kalpana Chawla etc.who rose above the odds and come out successfully.

The forum conducted a survey on the problems faced by the residents of Adhivasi colonies in kuriottumala, in collaboration with the NSS unit of our college on October 2nd .The survey was an eye opener for the students regarding the life of inhabitants. The volunteers took feedback from around 200 residents. It helped the volunteers to gain a first hand knowledge on their living conditions namely educational status, availability of potable water, electricity and sanitation facilities. The survey also addressed various health issues faced by them. The survey also gave the gender scenario of the area. A seminar on 'Women Empowerment' by Prof.Asha.G.Vakkam(Kerala Sahitya Academy Award Winner 2006)was conducted by the forum on 29 th January 2016.She gave the various multi dimensions of women’s empowerment. As the adage goes well begun is half done. We are quite positive on the fact that the rest of the year will go as scheduled and as brilliantly as it has been still now.
