Women Empowerment

Empowerment is the primary process of social development that can enable women to participate in the economic, political, and socially sustainable development of rural communities.

Today, women’s empowerment has become one of the most critical concerns of the 21st century, but practically women’s empowerment is still an illusion of reality. Empowerment of women is essentially the process of uplifting the economic, social, and political status of women, the traditionally underprivileged ones in the society.

We observe in our day-to-day life how women become victimized by various social evils. Women Empowerment is the vital instrument to expand women’s ability to have resources and make strategic life choices. It is the process of guarding against all forms of violence.

Women Empowerment refers to increasing the spiritual, political, social, educational, gender, or economic strength of individuals and communities of women. Women are an integral part of every economy. All-around development and balanced growth of a nation would be possible only when women are considered as equal partners in progress with men.

The empowered women become the agents of their development, able to exercise choices to set their schedule and be strong enough to challenge their subordinate position in society. Women, particularly in rural areas, have most minor possessions, skills, education, social status, leadership qualities, and mobilization capabilities proportionately, determining the degree of decision-making and power. As a result, their dependence on men increases.

They have been confined to the four walls of the household, overburdened with domestic works and controlled of their mobility and personal freedom by the men of the family since time immemorial. So they have lagged in the fields of education, skill development, and employment; thus, their work is significantly undervalued in economic terms. Women should be put in the country’s development plan to achieve its desired goal.

They should also be made development partners, and development ultimately becomes the process of empowerment. This ensures their full participation in the aspect of social and national development.
Society must provide equal opportunity to both the sexes to uplift humanity and society’s well-being as a whole. Women represent half the world’s population, and gender inequality exists in every nation on the planet.

The community must take the initiative to create a climate in which they can benefit from government schemes for women’s development. There should be no gender discrimination. Women have full opportunities of self-des decision making and participating in the social, political, and economic life with a sense of equality.
