Krishna Menon Memorial Govt.Women's College named after the illustrious son of our country Sri. V.K Krishna Menon is an institution of higher education situated in the ancient town of Kannur, which is the home of looms and lores. The college is affiliated to Kannur University. This institution is primarily meant for the progressive education of young women and it is the only women’s college in the northern part of Kerala extending from Kozhikode to Kasargode. Being an institution in the government sector, the college is committed to serve the economically weaker and the less privileged sections of the society.

The college is the virtual realization of the long cherished dream of the service oriented, hard working and progressive citizens of Kannur. In a district which has been declared socially and educationally backward by the government, it was imperative that a women’s college should be started in the public sector to cater to the needs of the increasing number of girls seeking education every year. In the present era of empowerment of women, the socially and economically backward communities of Malabar, which lagged behind in education, necessitated a separate women’s institution. Now it is heartening to note that the women students of minority and backward communities, among others, are blessed with the light of knowledge. This institution came in to existence as a sequel to the untiring efforts of the Cannanore Women’s Education and Welfare Society and other social workers.
