Abstract: Women empowerment has been thoroughly discussed in the last two decades it refers to increasing and improving the social, economic, political and legal strength of the women, to ensure equal- right to the women. Women are significant contributors to the growing economy. Women empowerment is essential for the achievement of sustainable development. The full participation and partnership of both women and man is required in productive and reproductive life. In all parts of the world, women are facing threats to their lives, health and well-being because of being overburdened with work and of their lack of power and influence.
The current scenario of women empowerment is very disbalance across the various segment of the society. Literacy plays a crucial role in promoting women’s right, achieving empowerment, enhancing overall livelihood and social status of women. Various measures have been taken by ways of enacting laws and implementing policies to empower women, but still there is a big gap that needs to be filled by way of implement more stronger policies and laws and creating an environment of awareness. “It is impossible to think about the welfare of the world unless the condition of women is improved. It is impossible for a bird to fly on only one wing.” – Swami Vivekanand
