Article by Engame Publishing, New Dehli. Gender equality is, first and foremost, a human right. A woman is entitled to live in dignity and freedom. Empowering women is also an indispensable tool for advancing development and reducing poverty. Empowered women contribute to the health and productivity of whole families and communities and improved prospects for the next generation.
Since the beginning of civilization, there has been bulk evidence of women being considered inferior to men. Almost every country, no matter how progressive has a history of ill-treating women. This has eventually nudged women to retrospect their status in society and has even led women from all over the world to be rebellious to reach the status they have today. Since then, women have been vocal about gender equality and have continuously made efforts to empower themselves to achieve that equality. The empowerment and autonomy of women and the improvement of their political, social, economic, and health status is a highly important end in itself.
In addition, it is essential for the achievement of sustainable development. The full participation and partnership of both women and men is required in productive and reproductive life, including shared responsibilities for the care and nurturing of children and maintenance of the household. In all parts of the world, women are facing threats to their lives, health and well-being as a result of being overburdened with work and of their lack of power and influence.
In most regions of the world, women receive less formal education than men, and at the same time, women’s knowledge, abilities and coping mechanisms often go unrecognized. The power relations that impede women’s attainment of healthy and fulfilling lives operate at many levels of society, from the most personal to the highly public.
Right Education is one of the most important means of empowering women with the knowledge, skills and self-confidence necessary to participate fully in the development process. More than 40 years ago, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights asserted that “everyone has the right to education”. But despite notable efforts by countries around the globe that have appreciably expanded access to basic education, there are approximately 960 million illiterate adults in the world, of who two-thirds are women. More than one-third of the world’s adults, most of them women, have no access to printed knowledge, to new skills or to technologies that would improve the quality of their lives and help them shape and adapt to social and economic change.
The need for women empowerment is one of the most significant needs of the hour. There are many ways in which women can be empowered. People should be united together to make the reality of the women empowerment. One of the significant steps towards women empowerment would be towards educating women. Education should be provided and encouraged so that more women can be literate. The education that they receive is going to help them pursue what they want to pursue. Women can have the life that they want to have and be happy in it
