Women's Empowerment refers to the strengthening of the social, economic and educational powers of women. It refers to an environment where there is no gender bias and equal rights in the community, society and workplaces. It has five components are sense of self-worth, the right to have and to determine choices, the right to have access to opportunities and resources, the right to have the power to control their own life, both within and outside the home, the ability to influence the direction of social change to create a more just social and economic order, nationally and internationally. Women are deprived of making any decision, freedom of movement, access to education, access to employment, exposure to media, and domestic violence so there is a need to empower women. We can empower women to make changes in women's mobility and social interaction, women's labour patterns, women's access to and control over resources and women's control over decision-making. Some advantages of women's Empowerment are if a woman is empowered then the next generation will also be empowered because of her, she will not be a burden on anyone and the financial burden on men can be shared with her support. In conclusion, women's empowerment is crucial for building a more equitable, just, and prosperous society. By promoting gender equality and dismantling barriers, we can create an environment where women can realize their full potential and contribute to positive social change both nationally and internationally. This will help in creating women-specific programme and policies. for development.
