The subject of empowerment of woman has become a burning issue all over the globe with Asian nations, for the past couple of decades. Inequalities between men and women and discrimination against women have been antique problems all over the world.
In a country where the goddess is worshipped and is given a shape, the Indian patriarchal society that we live in where, 50% of households still consider men to be the head of the family, irrespective of the right to equality under article 14, guaranteed by the constitution of India.
Empowerment of women to bring them to an equal level will also help the nation develop economically and at other micro levels as well. The perpetuated feelings in the minds of the women made them feel weak and oppressed. Gradually with time, they realized that all we’re humans and that they were equal and not superior to men, vice versa.
They have the urge to claim equality with men in matters of culture, discipline, schooling, employment, legacy, birthright, matrimony, politics, and recently in the field of creed and to serve as priests or chaplains. Their go for equality has given birth to the formation of many women’s associations. There is no tool for development more effective than the authorization of women. Women are ½ of the reproduction equation and without them, there is simply no human race.
As Malala said “ I said to myself, Malala, you must not be afraid of anyone, You are only trying to get an education. You are not committing a crime”
Feminism a term most misunderstood is not empowering only one gender but however observing equality between humans. The distinction is made when one differentiates and calls oneself a girl or a boy. The whole society moved towards the emancipation of women but unfortunately, they forgot to teach society how to deal with them. Women are naturally gifted and powerful, and need not be empowered or dependent on someone to be powerful, but just stand for their own rights, views, and opinions. Empowerment a term creates a physiological effect of considering one weak. We have been listening to stories of goddesses and queens since childhood and as we recall, they never needed empowerment or validation but stood on they believed and made history
