This research paper is focus on the issue related to the role of women empowerment in the society. Women empowerment is necessary in every field for the development of the society. Women are the key factor for the growth and development of any society. Women significantly affect and increase the standard of the society and level of the society. Women empowerment is not only affect the growth of the society but also boost up the economy of the country.
The issue of gender inequality has been around and debated for decades now. In the West it is mostly considering the wages and job opportunities as in the developing countries the problems are more about lack of women empowerment, their access to services, power of deciding within their family life and breaking traditions and norms that are demeaning and/or undermining. With this issue there is a dilemma of whether the Western views and beliefs on gender equality and women empowerment can and should be applied to developing countries. As seen in the paper, policies and projects that are designed to reduce the problem, can backfire and create even more issues. One of the reasons why women empowerment today is so important is overpopulation,
Introduction Women compose approximately half of the total human resources in our country. However, women are, the more poor and restricted than men as they are subjected to lots of socioeconomic and social constraint. The situation is more cruel in the rural and backward zones, which need to be empowered. Therefore, various government and non government organization are involved in women 's empowerment activities. Women empowerment pass on to an increase in the strength of women such as religious, political, community and economic.
It not only helps in the development of half of the human resources, but in improving the quality of life at home and outside. Educated women not only tend to promote education of their girl children, but also can provide better guidance to all their children. Moreover educated women can also help in the reduction of infant mortality rate and growth of the population. Obstacles: Gender discrimination still persists in India and lot more needs to be done in the field of women's education in India. The gap in the male-female literacy rate is just a simple indicator.
Women development has been identified as the key factor for sustainable development. Four important issues connected with women in the area of work are 1. Invisibility or undervaluation of women’s work A major part of the women’s work remains unacknowledged and is out of the purview of monetized productive activities 2. Concentration in Subsistence sector Women in the rural areas are engaged in the traditional or conventional activities and occupation as a result of which their activities are not counted 3. Feminization of work
It is much more than that. Women empowerment is about providing women with the respect they deserve, and have been denied since centuries, it is about providing them with education, equal opportunities, equal pay and many more things which they have only dreamt of till the recent past. Now we are beginning to witness a revolution, women are getting what they deserved and their constant advancement in every field are evidences good enough to proof that, if given an opportunity they can attain great heights and conquer what has never been conquered.
Every development programme initiated in our country, has stressed on the importance of raising the status of women. In this context, it is necessary to analyse the socio-economic background of women in the study area, so as to understand their levels of empowerment.
The term ‘women empowerment’ has become popular after 1980s. It refers to the process of strengthening women who have been suffering from various inequalities and gender discrimination. It refers to the process of providing power to woman to become independent and assume power to control her own life and to determine her own conditions. It also refers to the process of providing equal rights, opportunities, responsibilities and power positions to women so that they able to play a role at par with men in society. In this modern era, women need to gain the same amount of power that men have.
Women form nearly half of the world 's population and a sustainable development can not be achieved without equal participation of men and women. Thus gender equality is not only a goal in its own right but also crucial factor for the sustainable development of any country. A route to sustainable development can only be achieved by providing men and women equal opportunities in all the spheres and both 's interests should be given parallel preference while allocating the resources. Women empowerment is imperative for gender equality which in turn leads to sustainable development. In 1992, the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) made important provisions for the recognition of women’s contributions and their full participation in sustainable development.
