”WOMEN EMPOWERMENT IS ALL ABOUT MAKING WOMEN BOTH SOCIALLY AND FINANCIALLY INDEPENDENT ALSO TO MAKE THEIR OWN DECISIONS . PROVIDING PROPER EDUCATION TO A GIRL CHILD IS A MAIN AGENDA OF WOMEN EMPOWERMENT.”
INDIAN SOCIETY :
A society where men turned the financial wheels and women were confined to drive the household wheels. The structure could adjust in the times. But times change and changing times bring their demands and limitations. The relevance and vitality of any structure are only justified by the ease with which it can adapt and remain dynamic. The Indian society, and the male-dominated, orientation could not overcome the inertia with ease.
As members of the emerging economic giant, it becomes essential that both genders contribute and benefit from the growth of the nation. However, women in India, continue to suffer from the burden of social norms, traditions, and definitions. It is an irony that globally considered as an epitome of strength, love, and care women are still ‘ The Weaker SEX’ in our society.
But now , India as a nation has taken significant steps to fill the gender gaps existing in the societies here. The constitution of India provides equality of employment opportunity, voting rights and equal pay for equal work. It lays great emphasis on the dignity of women and constitutes several pro-visions like maternity reliefs to maintain a gender-sensitive environment at the workplace.
Empowered women will enrich the civil society of the nation and will drive the virtuous cycle to work for more advantages. This social empowerment will help them take a proactive part in aligning some distortions of society. Women will then find a voice against eve-teasing and insensitivity in urban areas. They can better handle the crusade against female foeticide and thereby rectify the demographic imbalance.
“Once a woman is on the move,
the whole family moves,
then the village moves,
at last the nation also moves.”
