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.
