Under pressure from men’s rights activists (or boys who’ve accidentally sought admission in girls’ colleges only to embarrass themselves), Delhi University has issued notices to Miranda House and Lady Sri Ram College for Women (LSR) directing them to become co-educational institutes. The deadline for ratification of the order is before the next academic year. The change is being seen as the biggest since the FYUP mess.
The colleges, however, have already given their consent and an official announcement is expected soon. A tender for construction of boys’ washrooms has also been uploaded on Miranda House’s website.
Students currently enrolled at the two colleges are voicing mixed reactions. While most are happy, few feel their freedom and peace is being put at stake. “BOYS BOYS BOYS.” was all we could collect from a girl of the former view. Those who oppose this decision say that they took admission in these colleges solely because they were exclusively interested in being with their own kind.
Interestingly, the hostel of LSR College will also follow suit and accommodate both boys and girls from the next academic year.
Additionally, LSR College for Women has decided to replace ‘Women’ in its name with ‘Everyone’, hence becoming Lady Sri Ram College for Everyone!
