  • Walk to Equality: Ensuring safety and empowerment of women By: Kunal Relan Kirti Sharma Shreya Saxena Kartikay Sharma Adityan Sharma
  • Empowerment is the process which enables one to gain power,authority and influence over others,institutions or society.Empowerment is probably the totality of the following:- 1.Having decision-making power of one's own. 2.Having access to information and resources for taking proper decision. 3.Having positive thinking on the ability to make change. 4.Ability to learn skills for improving one's personal or group power. So, In short, empowerment is the process that allows one to gain the knowledge, skill-sets and attitude needed to cope with the changing world and the circumstances in which one lives.
  • Women Empowerment
  • “EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN NOT JUST A GOAL IN ITSELF, BUT KEY TO ALL GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT GOALS”
  • Since the ancient times when King’s were said to have as many as 200 wives, the social evils like sati, female infanticide, dowry and child marriage have been haunting the Indian Society. The prevalence of such fanatical practices is not only a sin but a matter of national shame. Since Independence concrete efforts have been made for the upliftment of women and to educate them on important issues of social, economic, political, legal cadre.
  • HOW DID IT BEGAN ?? Women upliftment and empowerment in India first received National and International recognition when the Indira Gandhi’s Government launched the Indira Mahila Yojana and when the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) incorporated the issue of Women Upliftment as one of its primary objective.
  • Rise in literacy rate.. It is noticed that the female literacy rate during the period 1991-2001 increased by 14.87% whereas male literacy rate rose by 11.72%. Hence the female literacy rate actually increased by 3.15% more compared to male literacy rate.
  • Increase in sex ratio Sex Ratio is defined as the number of females per 1000 males. Sex Ratio is an important social indicator to measure the extent of prevailing equity between males and females.According to the Census of India, 2001, the sex ratio of India stands at 933. This is a marginal improvement from the 1991 Census, which had recorded 927 females for every 1000 males.
  • The status of women in India has been subject to many great changes over the past few millennia. From a largely unknown status in ancient times through the low points of the medieval period, to the promotion of equal rights by many reformers, the history of women in India has been eventful.
  • The empowerment of women occurs in reality, when women achieve increased control and participation in decision making that leads to their better access to resources, and therefore, improved socio-economic status.
  • Women in India now participate in all activities such as education, politics, media, art and culture, service sectors, science and technology, etc. eg. Sheila Dixit (Chief Minister of Delhi) Pratibha Devisingh Patil (first woman President of the Republic of India.)
  • It has been rightly said that :- ”When a woman can plan her family, she can plan the rest of her life. When she is healthy, she can be more productive.”
  • You don’t have to be shades of grey; You can stand out and shine bright A message to every woman A message to every woman A message to every woman
