Women empowerment is the term used to refer to the empowerment of women in all the spheres of life e.g. education, employment, health, safety, etc. It is fundamental to the economic and social progress of the nation as well as that of the world. As long as gender discrimination exists, an equated society and sustainable development cannot be achieved. It is important to realise and understand that women in the modern era are not only equally competent but often times even ahead of men in several socio-economic fields, thus making their presence in the work front extremely important.
