"Women Empowerment in the Context of Feminism & Ecofeminism"-A Rational Approach

Dipa Goswami

The Indian Constitution conceptually includes justice and equality as salient features towards welfare of the society. Women are considered to be the pillars of a community as they contribute an integral part in social, political, cultural and economic position in the present generation. The main reason for obstruction in empowerment of women in India can be justified as a lack of educational facilities along with the denial of basic human rights as well as political power since later Vedic period, which gradually percolated through the forthcoming centuries. The term Empowerment signify needs and right dimensions, which can be elaborated as translation of ones needs into rights. The sense of empowerment essentially differs in Indian and Western cultures in as much as the latter culture predominantly depends on technological advancements, where as the former depends mostly upon domestic and agricultural support to the family. Inspite of this fact, they are often deprived of any economic productivity. This inequality and gender biasness needs to be justified from feminist and ecofeminist approaches. Francoise dEaubonne introduced the term Ecofeminism in her book de Feminism ouda Nort. Ecofeminism originated in post modernism period. It links exploitation and domination of women with nature and argues for liberation of both. In the aspect of ecofeminism, women are affected by world environmental system.
