Empowering the women is not about pitching women up against men, in some hypothetical evolutionary race for survival.
It's about giving your fellow female passengers to the grave, all the rights that have been unequivocally monopolized by men for centuries.
Why Women Empowerment???
Half a sphere can never roll across a floor like a sphere
Women form the neglected, unheard half part of the Indian development sphere which had been trying to roll to life for years. For our country to grow as a culture, economy or just flourish, we need to heed to this part of the society. Women are better multitaskers than men. And if trained can prove to be a better foundation on which our society can further thrive.
We cannot just lay down the reason to be equality and morality. Yes, women deserve to be treated equally, yes; they deserve everything to be given to them rightfully back that had been denied to them for centuries. But no, that’s not the only reason we want them to be more strong. The more selfish reason is that it is the need of the hour.It has been acknowledged by UN, proved significantly by government made policies that money channeled to empower women, skill development programs upheld to make women independent drive the economy of any country ahead more powerfully as compared to when men oriented programs are initiated.
More importantly the focus is on the rural women who has the responsibility of an entire family upon them and are struggling to keep up. These women when taught the proper business regime and innovation schemes with the notion of collective growth turn out to be successful entrepreneurs uplifting their family out of the web of debt while advancing others around them.
