Subhashree Bera

Abstract: The Father of Nation Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the influentialspearhead of the freedom movement of India. The path of Ahimsa was the main weapon of the Gandhian's philosophy for the battle of freedom. Gandhiji was a true devoteeof women empowerment. He believed that nobody can free and liberate women from their social and mental burden unless the women herself wish to do so. The present study is an overview of Gandhian thoughts towards women liberation. The paper has discussed the social, political, educational position of women according to Gandhiji and the relevance of his thought in the present context. A detailed study on related published peer-reviewed scholarly articles, unpublished non-peer-reviewed articles of related aspects, newspapers, and internet sources explore that though Gandhiji truly believed in gender equality and freedom of women in every aspect of life, till now women empowerment is not getting its actual dignity what it should be. The government of India has implemented many rules and regulations against crime towards women, steps for gender equality and women empowerment. Despite that crime against women and gender bias always lead to violation of the human rights of women in India.
