Women Empowerment is empowering women with all the rights and facilities in the society so that they can live freely without any fear and restriction. Women should get proper rights in society like a man without any gender discrimination between men and women. Women should know as well as get the proper fundamental rights once they born. Empowerment is the process that creates power in individuals over their own lives, society, and in their communities. People are empowered when they are able to access the opportunities available to them without limitations and restrictions such as in education, profession, and lifestyle. Feeling entitled to make your own decisions creates a sense of empowerment. Empowerment includes the action of raising the status of women through education, raising awareness, literacy, and training. Women’s empowerment is all about equipping and allowing women to make life-determining decisions through different problems in society.
Women’s empowerment can only be achieved when we include men and boys. Men are often those who define and keep women within their boundaries. But when we engage with them they realize that their wives’ empowerment benefits the whole family. Promoting gender equality and empowering women is the key to lifting entire families out of poverty.
Currently, women have started participating in almost all activities such as education, politics, sports, media, art, service sectors, science, and technology, etc. However, because of the deep-rooted patriarchal mentality, they are still being tortured, victimized, exploited and humiliated. There is still gendered discrimination in the fields of education, freedom, and the economy. Therefore, scholars agree that women’s empowerment plays a huge role in the development and is one of the significant contributions of development. Without the equal inclusion of women in development, women would not be able to benefit or contribute to the development of the country.
