Women’s empowerment is the need for today as 50 percent of the population is of women across the globe. When we talk about empowerment, it actually means giving full power, independence and authority to live life. And as we are living in the 22nd century, women certainly requires equality to live freely and take major decisions of life.
Though, you will notice that as compared to men women have lesser power and they have the lesser freedom to live their own life. So, the time has come to give them equality to walk hand in hand with men because no country will prosper without the equality with men. Without their participation, no development work is ensured in any arena. It is the demand of time where women empowerment has become significant. Emphasizing on the today’s fact women development and women empowerment are two inseparable factors and are interrelated. This is the only reason many women NGO are working for women and their development. The government is also showing its concern on this important point.
Earlier, no power was given to women, they had not been given the freedom of speech against the exploitation they faced. In the 19th and 20th century, many protest and voices were raised against the harassment of women and their rights of equality were advocated.
It is a fact that people who are fighting for women’s liberation are facing severe hindrances. Initially, they were unable to amend the rules and regulations for them but nowadays, many NGOs are fighting for women and girls right. They are aiming to provide them with the best education, training, vocational courses etc. for their upliftment. By the help of such course, many women and girls are able to earn bread and butter thus, living their life smoothly. As poverty is one of the major concern for anyone, the support is being offered to stand on their own feet.
The women’s empowerment is being accelerated throughout the world and women are being motivated to play a vital role in diverse sectors including home and job front.
