Women Empowerment – 7 Ways to Empower Women

8th March is celebrated worldwide as International Women’s Day, a day when every individual pledges to honour, respect and value the women in their lives.

Women empowerment quotes

However, in a gender-biased society, how do we ensure gender parity all year long? In a world where women are often misjudged for the most trivial of choices, can we really say that women are empowered at all? Probably not.

Before we talk about how to empower women, we must first know why we need to. The reason is simple and universal. Women deserve to be empowered and deserve an equal footing because they certainly aren’t the weaker sex. It is their right to get all the opportunities and benefits that have been limited to men for years.

Ways to Women Empowerment:

Women empowerment doesn’t mean giving her riches… Empowerment begins with small yet meaningful steps that bring about a positive change. Here are some easy ways to help empower women all around.

7 ways to Empower Women

1. Ensure women’s safety

Out in the streets, women fight an unspoken war every day. Some are assaulted, some molested, and some violated. Truth be told, there is no safe haven for women anywhere, since most of these horrific cases occur inside homes and offices. While the government does need to initiate strict laws for the safety and security of women, we too need to keep our eyes open for wrongdoers.

2. Education
An educated girl can not only live life on her own terms, she can very well change the world. As responsible citizens, it is our duty to take that first step. From that urchin girl who begs for alms to that ragpicker who lives under the bridge, every girl needs and deserves to be educated. Teach one, teach all, and open new pathways for her bright future.

3. Healthcare
Safety isn’t just fighting criminals but also creating a safe, survivable environment for women all over. Ensure a safe, holistic environment and regular health check-ups.

4. Save a Girl
We focus on women empowerment every now and then, but how will we initiate the steps mentioned above when there will be no women? Girls in many parts of the world including India are killed before birth. Reason are many, but the consequences are horrific.

5. Teach job skills
A small skill is enough for a woman to start a career. Be it gardening, sewing or craftsmanship, these efforts can help them start a small-scale business of their own. Share new ideas with them and help them learn, because women empowerment begins with small initiatives.

6. Raise your voice against gender inequality
Above all, raise your voice. Stand up for every woman and help decrease the prevalent gender disparity in all the stratas of society.

7. Give her Freedom
“Don’t travel late, stay within limits.” At every step we tend to imply restrictions on women. Now is the time to change the equation.
Don’t bind them in the chains of orthodox views. Give them the freedom they deserve.
If you wish to change something, broaden your mind and see what great achievers women can become.

Be-you

Women empowerment starts within our families, workplaces, and neighborhoods. Appreciate those superheroes who start their day much before you and end it much later. Say thanks to your mom and that teacher who encouraged you years ago. Say thanks to your sister who inspires you at every step. Say thanks to your daughter, whose smile is enough to fill your day with happiness.
