Our vision is to enable women to play their true role in all fields of life, and to help in the ushering in of the new race envisioned by Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.
While great strides have been made in the matter of women’s empowerment in India as well as in several other countries, much more remains to be done. The Women’s Council strives to make a small contribution in this effort.
An integral part of the Sri Aurobindo Society, the Council focuses on all issues relevant to women, and helps them to awaken to the truth that all human beings are manifestations of one universal Self. As the Mother put it, “In regard to this Supreme Reality all are equal, men and women, in rights and in duties….”
The objectives of the Women’s Council are to:
help woman to find herself, to understand herself and to make her aware of the inherent spiritual strength within her
find and realise her aim in life
develop and express her full potential
prepare her, spiritually and materially, to play her true role in all aspects of collective life
channel her talents, enthusiasm and energies to build a new future
