Abstract: The Empowerment of women has become one of the most important concerns of 21st century not
only at national level but also at the international level. Besides, the society must take initiative
to create a climate in which there is no gender discrimination and women have full opportunities
of self-decision making and participating in social, political and economic life of the country
with a sense of equality. To ensure women economic empowerment, education for women has to
be paid special attention. Women should be allowed to work and should be provided enough
safety and support to work. Women ought to be permitted to work and ought to be sufficiently
given wellbeing and backing to work. They should be provided with proper wages and work at
par with men so that their status can be elevated in the society. Awareness programmes need to
be organized for creating awareness among women especially belonging to weaker sections
about their rights.
