Field Attachment is an important component of the M. A. in Women's Studies program as it requires our students to get attached to organizations working on women's issues. The objective of the Field Attachment is to enrich students' theoretical and practical understandings of women's issues through firsthand experience. It provides an opportunity to students to learn by observing, participating and doing and it allows for contextualized and integrated learning based on direct interaction with ground realities. It also enhances and prepares skills of fieldwork, research, documentation, presentation and advocacy.
In the past 2 years, our students have been placed with different women's organizations, feminist organizations, collectives and people's movements in and around Mumbai. We acknowledge the following partnering organizations who have hosted students of Women's Studies for field attachment.
