Dr. Ambedkar is considered as one of the greatest personalities of 20th century India. He has made significant efforts to lead the society on the path of Equality, Liberty and Fraternity. His principle aim was to build up a society based on social justice. He started his movement in 1920 in which he raised his voice against the Hindu social order and social system through his renowned journal Mook Nayak in 1920 and Bahiskrit Bharat in 1927. Almost in his movement he spoke on the gender equality, women education and exposed the problems related to women and other depressed class. He made awareness among poor and illiterate women and inspired them to fight against the unjust. He made adequate effort toward inclusion of women's right in political and constitution of India. He insisted on Hindu Code bill and suggesting the basic improvements and amendments in assembly. He also insisted and evoked the parliamentary members to help, to pass the bill in parliament. Eventually, he had resigned for the same reason. Thus his deep concern and feelings for all round development of women is expressed through his selfless work. So in the present study the researcher tries to bring out the role of Dr. Ambedkar in empowering women.
