Women Empowerment

“Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong, it’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.”
-G.D. Anderson

 

“Women’s empowerment is intertwined with respect for human rights.”-Mahnaz Afkhami

Women Empowerment

Education is the one and only weapon for eliminating the disparities from society. That’s why education to poor children is important and for both the means and end for a better life. It’s a means because it empowers individual’s life and makes him/her earn livelihood whereas it’s an end because it helps in developing one’s mind and makes him/her aware about the range of issues like healthcare, law, moral values, society and most importantly makes a good citizen.

 

Unfortunately being aware with this reality, girls in society still kept deprived of the education due to the orthodox mentalities of the society. They are not even being counted in the children of the family when it comes to education.

 

Various studies, as well as our experience, have shown that when we work towards women empowerment, the whole society benefits. But unfortunately in India, far from being empowered, most women are denied even their basic rights like health, education, employment and a respectable status in society.

According to a recent UNDP Human Development Report, India has a dangerously imbalanced sex ratio, the chief reason being rampant female infanticide and sex-selective abortions.
