Women empowerment in India
Keywords:Moral Power, World Population, National Development, Women Empowerment
Women empowerment has been the subject matter of concern for decades in all countries of the world. India with specific reference has been subject to greater inequality with women empowerment being a distant dream even today in certain parts of the country. The paper is an attempt to highlight the significance of women empowerment for a nation. The current scenario prevalent with regard to women empowerment on various spheres in the country has been highlighted with various measures and the challenges for the same have been noted. The paper concludes that more micro-level assessment of women empowerment has to be done in India to make the various measures and schemes of the government more meaningful and help achieve gender equality.
