“WOMEN EMPOWERNMENT: CHALLENGES AND GOVERNMENT POLICIES.”

Dr.Sanjay  Mehrotra

Abstract :

Women empowerment means their capacity to participate as equal partners in cultural, social, economic and political systems of a society. Even though the world economy has developed into global economy, in both developed and developing countries women have been suppressed in all walks of life for generations. Women empowerment is far easier said than done. This in a certain respect demands a revolutionary change in the socio cultural values of the society. Still gender bias and beliefs are playing as chief obstacles for the growth of women empowerment worldwide. In India also, in spite of various laws that protect women’s rights, the gender inequalities are one of the highest in the world.
