It will focus on the history of Kerala’s stellar women, their fights and their struggles, their victories, and how much they have contributed in making Kerala the wonderful hotpot of ideologies and cultures which it truly is today. The museum gallery will be a space for preserving women’s history as well as educating current and future generations about women’s experiences and contributions through originally curated exhibits, educational programs, and community events. The curated display at the museum would serve to envision gender diversity on a broader canvas and promote gender inclusivity.

The Library will be a central point of reference for academic research with a focus entirely on building a better understanding of the genders around us, and normalise them to further their acceptance. The library houses an extensive collection of books, periodicals, journals and publications on gender rights, feminist literature, transgender experiences and other studies on gender.
