Women's are the power of nation

Women are the future, empower them today.

Women's empowerment is important because it helps to create a more just and equitable world. When women are empowered, they can contribute more to society and to the economy. They can also help to break down gender stereotypes and to create a more equal society.

Why Women Empowerment is Important?

Women’s empowerment is important for a number of reasons. First, it helps to improve the lives of women themselves. When women are empowered, they are more likely to be healthy, educated, and economically independent. They are also more likely to participate in political and social decision-making.

 

Second, women’s empowerment is good for society as a whole. When women are empowered, they can contribute more to the economy and to society. They can also help to break down gender stereotypes and to create a more just and equitable world.

Women Empowerment Ratio in India

The women empowerment ratio in India has been improving over the past few decades. However, there is still a long way to go.

According to a 2019 report by the World Bank, India’s women empowerment ratio is 60.4%. This means that women in India have 60.4% of the same opportunities as men.

The report found that the biggest gaps in women’s empowerment in India are in education, employment, and political participation.

The report also found that there is a significant variation in women’s empowerment across different states in India. The states with the highest women empowerment ratios are Kerala, Himachal Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu. The states with the lowest women empowerment ratios are Bihar, Jharkhand, and Uttar Pradesh.

 

The government of India has taken several steps to improve women’s empowerment, including:

 

  1. The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), aims to provide universal elementary education to all children in India, regardless of gender.
  2. The Midday Meal Scheme, which provides free meals to school children, especially girls.
  3. The National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA), which guarantees 100 days of paid work to rural men and women.
  4. The Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY), provides skill training to youth, especially women.
  5. The Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao, aims to improve the sex ratio at birth and to promote education among girls.

 

These programs have had some success in improving women’s empowerment in India. However, there is still a lot of work to be done. The government needs to continue to invest in women’s education, employment, and political participation. It also needs to address the cultural and social barriers that prevent women from achieving their full potential.
