Women being the
most powerful entity as described in the Vedas of Indian culture, been worshipped
as  goddess of wealth, wisdom and power.
But,  existing social customs and socio
economic situation  made it hard for
women to achieve gender equality on the basis of humanity compared with men.  They say providing  women with health, better education and
economic opportunities;  and allowing
them to take their own decisions helps in building the nation. Even the
constitution of India provides provision of equal rights for both men and women
in all spheres . But,  advancement of
women upliftment policies  and actual put
into practice are unmatched. Women constitute 50% of the population of this
country. Utilizing this section of society helps in building powerful nation.
However  government is taking appropriate
measure  to immediately remove gender
inequality by empowering women.women empower can
be achieved through giving women political rights, economic rights and social justice.
This can be obtained through bringing changes in women’s ability to progress

change in labour patterns; and  their
control over decision making. Encouraging women to pursue in the fields they
are fascinated in; and more importantly, the society need to change the way
they look at women. Preamble of Indian
constitution  starts saying,” We the
people of India”, include both men and women of the country as equally
important.  So to achieve equality and
remove gender inequality, central government and state government of India is
keeping efforts in implement over 34 schemes for women. Few of them include: Rastria
Mahila Kosh, Indira Mahila Yojana, Swalamban, National Mission for Empowerment
of Women, Ujjawala, Dhanalakahmi, Prime Minister’s Rojgar Yojana, Women’s
Development Corporation Scheme, Mahila Samiti Yojana and SIDBI’s Mahila Udyam

Empowerment is required in order to protect themselves and elimination of violence
against them. As the society is predominantly ruled by male, empowering women
face lot of challenges in every aspect of their life, beginning from basic
education to profession career, and in households.Women Empowerment
can only be achieved through improving socio and economic  status. That can be achieved through providing
education, conducting awareness programs, providing safety and security; and
strictly implementing government schemes. It is essential for the nation to
support women in every aspect of their upliftment.  As gender equality will only be reached if we
are able to empower women – Michelle Bachelet.

Gender equality is the
main concern of this century  and this  inequality is seen in every nation of the world.
Government initiatives alone cannot achieve the desired results, society also
should understand the importance of women and encourage them to come out of the
social customs and socio economic situation, only then true women empowerment
is achieved.
