There is no denying the fact that women in India have made considerable progress in almost seven decades of Independence, but they still have to struggle against many handicaps and social evils in the male-dominated society. The mentality of the society still prevails in the modern Indian society that resists the forward march of its womenfolks. It is ironical that a country, which has recently acclaimed the status of the first Asian country to accomplish its Mars mission in the maiden attempt, is positioned at the 29th rank among 146 countries across the globe on the basis of Gender Inequality Index. There has been an act of making the position of women better in society, but their true empowerment is still awaited.
Swami Vivekananda, one of the greatest sons of India, quoted that, “There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of women is improved, It is not possible for a bird to fly on a single wing. Thus, in order to achieve the status of a developed country, India needs to transform its large/great women force into an effective human resource and this is possible only through the empowerment of women.
