Women Empowerment: Changeable Winds

Women Empowerment: Changeable Winds

Women’s empowerment can be defined as promoting women’s sense of self-worth, their ability to make their own decisions, and their right to influence social change for themselves and others.

Women’s empowerment has become a buzzword today, with women working alongside men in all fields. They have an independent mindset, whether they are at home or working outside. They are gaining more control over their lives and making their own decisions about their education, career, profession, and lifestyle. Even so, as the number of working women has steadily increased, they have gained financial independence, which has given them the confidence to lead their own lives and build their own identities. They are successfully pursuing a variety of professions to demonstrate that they are unrivalled in any way.

Nevertheless, women must strike a balance between their commitment to their profession and their home and family. As a matter of fact, they play the roles of mother, daughter, sister, wife, and working professional with remarkable harmony and ease. With equal opportunities to work, they are working in a team spirit to provide all possible assistance to their male counterparts in meeting the deadlines and targets set in their respective professions.

Besides this, women’s empowerment is not limited to urban, working women; women in even the most remote towns and villages are increasingly making their voices heard loud and clear in society. They are no longer content to be second fiddle to their male counterparts. Educated or not, they are asserting their social and political rights and making their presence felt, regardless of their socioeconomic backgrounds.

While it is true that women still face little discrimination in society today, many of them face exploitation and harassment of various kinds: emotional, physical, mental, and sexual. As an outcome, they are frequently subjected to rape, abuse, and other forms of physical and intellectual violence. Women’s empowerment will be achieved in the truest sense only when there is a cultural shift toward treating women with dignity, fairness, and equality. Rural areas of the country, on the other hand, are steeped in a feudal and mediaeval outlook, refusing to grant women equal say in matters of education, marriage, dress-code, profession, and social interactions.

Let’s wish that the empowerment of women spreads to both developed and underdeveloped regions of our vast nation.
