Abstract

 Empowerment actually is a process that addresses all sources and structures of power. An important means of women’s empowerment is economic independence through information, knowledge and necessary skills. Education is the tool that can help break the pattern of gender discrimination and bring drastic change for women in developing countries. Women empowerment refers to increasing the spiritual, political, social, educational, gender or economic strength of individuals and communities of women. There are several challenges that are plaguing the issues of women’s right in India. Targeting these issues will directly benefit the empowerment of women in India as Poverty, Health and Safety, Professional Inequality, Morality and Inequality, Household Inequality etc. The Government programmes for women development began as early as 1954 in India but the actual participation began only in 1974. Thus, we find that Empowerment actually is a process that addresses all sources and structures of power. and Education is the tool that can help break the pattern of gender discrimination and bring drastic change for women in developing countries.
