Women as a category of analysis has increasingly been studied to evolve an understanding of their condition, position and status and their relationship with men, resources and power in society. With the evolution of gender studies and a critical understanding of women’s position, a large body of knowledge is now increasingly available to understand the issues, as well as for developing effective interventions at different levels. Women continue to remain marginalised and have to be studied and addressed as a separate vulnerable group. Within social work epistemology and praxis, there is thus an imperative to include the realities of women—in particular women-centred social work. This would mean an understanding of feminist theorisations, praxis models, praxis trajectories in the global and indigenous contexts, and developing appropriate skills for intervention at multiple levels.

The M.A. Social Work in Woman-Centred Practice endeavours to engage learners to critically understand and examine women’s position in society from diverse feminist theoretical frameworks, so as to develop judicious skills of intervention, and to develop women’s agency and citizenship. The programme aims to prepare and equip its graduates to directly work with people — women in particular — in their communities, movements and campaigns; in organisations initiated by civil society and the state; with issues and concerns of oppressive social structures, at the local, national and international levels; within systems and institutions of governance and the state. The programme envisages its graduates performing multiple roles of social worker, activist, designing and implementing programmes, coordinator, researcher and educator.
