Gandhi's View on Empowerment of Women in India

Dr. Nabanita Dutta


Abstract: The position and status of women has been changing ?from age to age?. Sometimes, even within the same century, diametrically opposite views about the worth and importance of women have prevailed. Indian society in the 19th century had fallen into a stage of degeneration after centuries of Afghan and Mughal, and then British rule. The British rule, specially, had created widespread poverty and hunger, and the propaganda of their missionaries had created a sense of insecurity among the people about their traditional customs and beliefs. Faced with this threat, the caste?ridden society had retreated into a shell, and in order to protect them from this attack became more orthodox and repressive. At this crucial stage, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi called women to join the social reformation work for independent India from British Raj. He was advice the Countrymen to educate Girl child to empower women of India. He strived ceaselessly to reform the Indian society, and in doing so, raised a new voice of pan? Indian nationalism. He was thus the vanguards of the Freedom Movement. My sole aim in this piece is to shed light on the views of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on women empowerment and education that are worth discussing and cherishing, so far as all reformers of 19th century India contribute positively to our argument for a need for emphasis on certain Indic values and conceptions of femininity.
