The women’s empowerment movement is gaining strength every day. The movement looks to improve the quality of life of women, allowing them to fully participate in business and the economy.
The abilities of women in making decisions, education, and profession have been largely suppressed since ages, considering them inferior to men. Because the situation is worst in underdeveloped and developing nations where women in a family are not allowed to take financial decisions or decide on matters regarding their own education.
With such state of affairs, it would be a fallacy to dream about the goals of sustainable development and gender equality. There is an instant need to take measures to lift the social, personal and professional status of women, bringing them shoulder to shoulder with men.
These particular measures constitute a process, which is known as “Women Empowerment” also Providing better education and employment opportunities to women, ensuring their better health, providing justice and ensuring professional equivalence, are the few methods of women empowerment.
