The term "Women Empowerment" indicates that women are not powerful enough and must be empowered. This terrible reality has existed for a very long time. In recent years, visible work has begun to raise women out of the abyss of insignificance and helplessness. Women's freedom was restricted all throughout the world by patriarchal societies. Women were not allowed to vote or express their opinions. Women were kept in their houses. They realized as time passed that their lives mattered far more than merely assisting in the home. The globe began to see a rising in women as more and more women began to breach man-made barriers. Women, unlike males, never strive to silence their opposing gender's voice. They grasp the hands of all the oppressed people - men and women alike - and pull them out of misery as they strive to better their lives.


The history of Women empowerment does not begin on a certain day; rather, it is a cumulative process. However, there have been rallies, demonstrations, and revolutions that have accelerated the cause of women's emancipation. Women were denied the right to vote in hundreds of countries throughout history, including the United States. As time went on, more and more women banded together and raised their voices. Gaining voting rights dramatically improved women's social standing. Many suffrage movements worked for women's voting rights daily. Individuals such as Elizabeth Stanton and organizations such as the National American Woman Suffrage Association and the National Woman's Party were instrumental in winning women's voting rights in the United States. The Women's Social and Political Union in the United Kingdom vigorously pushed for women's suffrage. It is a pity for society as a whole, given that many countries just recently allowed women the right to vote. After the second half of the twentieth century, Kuwait, Qatar, Zaire, Bahrain, Andorra, the Central African Republic, and other countries allowed women the right to vote. No woman can be empowered until she is financially self-sufficient. Women no longer have to rely on their dads or spouses to obtain what they desire. Women have increased possibilities to enter the labour field beginning in the twentieth century. 

At the same time, many women in England were obliged to labour both at work and at home to support their families. After WWII, women made the decision to enter the labour force on their own. Today, more and more employees are becoming available for women. Women are proven to be deserving of the titles bestowed upon them. Women have also gained major decision-making authority in the home. Both men and women today decide whether or not to have a child. The adoption of contraceptive tablets gave women even more control. Women can now work and study without restriction. Women empowerment cannot be achieved unless women at the bottom of society are empowered. Since the turn of the century, women at the grassroots level have found various vocational jobs, even those previously designated for men. Today, there are many female masons, bus drivers, gas station employees, farmers, and so on. And all of these women are doing an excellent job. 


Women empowerment in India is incomparable to that in other countries. Women were held in great regard throughout the Vedic period. The emphasis on women's education was never lost. The term 'sahadharmini' dates back to Vedic times. Sahadharmini translates as "equal companion." Women in ancient India were treated with respect, education, and devotion. The strict Middle Eastern and British traditions infiltrated Indian culture throughout time. As a result, women's authority and esteem were diminished.

Women gradually regained their lost influence following independence. Women are omnipresent nowadays. The country has its first female Prime Minister and President, and it has several notable female athletes such as Saina Nehwal and P.T Usha, as well as outstanding women scientists such as A. Chatterjee and B Vijayalakshmi. In India, women are entering the armed forces without reluctance. However, many women in India are still struggling to break free from patriarchy, particularly in rural areas. The empowered women must encourage these women to speak up, protest, and seek assistance from the authorities.
