Women Empowerment in India: Role of Higher Education

Ankur Kukreti [4] | Dr. D. C. Agrawal [2]


Abstract: First of all, I would like to congratulate every Indian one on being the part of a country having the second highest population approximately 128 crores. But my question to everyone is What is women empowerment Is it just providing financial help to needy women or is it just providing means of livelihood to all women and after doing this can you satisfactorily say that, yes, I have contributed towards women empowerment. Or is it something else My next question is Whenever any discussion about women is done why we started comparing men with women does this reflects the image of men dominant economy. Shouldnt women empowerment go hand-in-hand with men. India is a spiritual land. A land where concepts and philosophies have attained their culminating point and for the development of such a country women empowerment is must which can be done through increasing literacy rate of females and provide higher education to women so that they can become self-dependent.
