Department of Gender Studies
Bahauddin Zakariya University, Multan, Pakistan
Department of Gender Studies (DGS) attempts at developing an understanding of women’s diverse contribution to the world, largely undermined and ignored in patriarchal societies. Gender Studies programmes are committed to appreciate and simulate the equity of women, men, and eunuchs in all areas of life so that each and every gender can have sense of freedom. Increasingly, specialists in gender studies are being employed as consultants in industry, higher education, insurance companies and private firms. Also the federal government agencies require people who have understanding of gender dynamics. There is a need to re-examine the role of gender in various bodies of knowledge constructed so far. A lot of examples from our societies can be quoted where women have moved ahead of the traditional boundaries in the pursuit of personal, regional, and national development. There is an urging need to clarify the misconception that disintegration of the traditional institution of family is in direct relationship with the emancipating roles picked up by the courageous women. Gender studies exposes you to a variety of disciplines in liberal arts so that you are able to think critically about the role of gender that shapes our personal, social, political, religious, domestic, regional, local, and global worlds.
