ECONOMIC STRENGTH OF INDIVIDUAL AND COMMUNITIES. IT OFTEN INVOLVES
THE EMPOWERED TO DEVELOP SELF CONFIDENCE IN THEIR OWN
CAPABILITIES.” HOWEVER WOMEN EMPOWERMENT NEVER MEANS
ANTAGONIZING THEM FROM MEN. IT SIMPLY MEANS THAT MEN AND WOMEN
MUST UNDERSTAND EACH OTHERS NEEDS.
Women should be secure against harassment and abuse in schools,
offices and public places. Security of a Woman is her basic right and the
state should be responsible for her security and protection so that they
can go to any place without any fear.

Double standards in society is not allowing people to act
real. They try to project something that they are not.
Example: Most people work in Gurudwara and voluntarily
wash utensils ,swipe floor, cutting of vegetables for langar
but the same scenario is opposite in homes at the cost of
female duty as homemakers
In business families daughter -in- law is not allowed to
work because of their so called high status as they feel
embarrassed getting salary from her and the social stigmas

Empowerment of women does not mean that they should be
separated from men and start protesting for their rights and
freedom . It implies that both genders equally understand each
other and give them their proper space and freedom.
Some ITI centers should be opened within the reach of common
people so that they can use their skills and earn their livelihood.

Achaar pappad business, small home works, beauty parlors etc.

any kind of harassment or molestation by their male colleagues.
GOVERNMENT POLICIES MUST BE ENACTED PROPERLY.

It is showing an increase of 9% in 10 years.
Men literacy rate – 82.14%

girl and hence our complete nation will be educated.

educated person should further teach
another person to make them aware of

infrastructure not only for sustaining high
growth but also for enhancing welfare.”

Hierarchical Society:- women are discriminated in
our society due to so called caste system.
Purdah System:- The veiling and seclusion of
Discrimination at work place:- It is more prevalent in
fields where the male competition is high.

in number of women applying for jobs, college
admissions, etc. and hence this in real sense
would lead to Equality, security and
empowerment of women.
