In India, Women population is around 50% of the total population of the world. They have every right to be treated equally with men in every sphere of life and society.
Empowering women in India is now very necessary to bring gender equality or we can say that gender equality is very necessary to empower women. Our country is still a developing country not a develop country and economic status of our country is very poor because it is a male-dominated country. Men (means the half power of the country) are walking alone and they forced women to do only household works. They do not know that women are the half power of this country and combining to male can form full power of the country.
women have been always made a subject of honor killings and they have never been given their basic rights for proper education and freedom. They are victims who have to face day to day violence, abuse and other several ill-treatments in this male dominated society and this patriarch society.Thus, in order to empower women in our country, we need to get rid of all demons in our society who are suppressing women and killing them. In India, there is a high level of gender inequality where women are maltreated by their family members as well as outsiders. According to census most of the illiterate part of our society is women.
To have the bright future in family, society and country empowerment of women is essential. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru had said that to awaken the people, we should first awaken the women, because once a women has been awakened then the whole nation and family get awakened with her.
The leadership of women in the public sector is the key to development in the nation. The day when the full power of the country would start working, no other country would be more powerful than the India. Men are not know how powerful Indian women are. Women and men both have unique and different experiences so both are important to bring influence into the decision making process. Equalizing the rights of women and men in the society improves work quality and thus the economic status of the nation.
Women Empowerment is strengthening the social, economic and educational powers of women. It refers to an environment where there is no gender bias and has equal rights in community, society, and workplaces.
Only rule can do nothing, it needs to understand the theme of rules, why rules are made, why women empowerment is so necessary for our country and other questions. It needs to think positively, it needs to change the way of our thinking about women. Women need to be given full freedom, it is their birth rights. Women too need to change their mindset that they are weak, anybody can cheat them or use them instead they need to think that they have same power like men and can do anything better than men. They can be physically powerful also by learning yoga, martial arts, kung fu, karate, etc as their safety measures.
Women empowerment is the vital tool for advancing development in the country. It also would help in reducing poverty by improving health and productivity within families and communities as well as providing better chance to the next generation. There are many social issues making women backward in India such as gender based violence, reproductive health inequities, economic discrimination, harmful traditional practices, other pervasive and persistent forms of inequality.
Women are bearing enormous hardship from the ancient time in India. during and after humanitarian emergencies, especially armed conflicts. There are many private and government organisations and institutions supporting women empowerment, promoting policy making, promoting gender-sensitive data collection, improving women’s health awareness and expanding their independency in the life. Despite such supports and human rights, women are still dependent, poor, unhealthy and illiterate. We need to think the reasons behind and solve all on immediate basis.
In order to really bring women empowerment in the Indian society, it needs to understand and eliminate the main cause of the ill practices against women which are patriarchal and male dominated system of the society. It needs to be open-minded and change the old mind set against women together with the constitutional and other legal provisions.
