About FAQ booklets


This series of booklets brought to you by the Gender Studies Group, Delhi University is the product of years of working with issues of gender in the University. These booklets were planned and realised as we came up against recurring problems of violence, ignorance, hostility and even indifference to questions of gender. Through these booklets, we wish to make an attempt to dispel myths, dissolve ignorance and create a culture in which sexual violence and exploitation have zero tolerance and to encourage a healthy culture regarding sexuality.Our FAQ Booklets center around four broad topics:

1. The Body

2. Sexual Minorities
