A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of ‘Women’s Empowerment’.
Wikipedia defines the term as follows: “Women’s empowerment may be defined in several ways, including accepting women’s viewpoints, making an effort to seek them and raising the status of women through education, awareness, literacy, and training.”
Women’s empowerment or women’s emancipation is a broad term that encompasses women gaining equal rights in every aspect of life. Today, women’s empowerment has risen to become an issue everyone is made aware of, especially through social media.
Women’s empowerment can be of various types. According to Keshab Chandra Mandal, an eminent author, female empowerment could be broadly divided into five different categories. They are social, educational, economic, political, and psychological.
Individually as well, a woman ought to feel empowered. She ought to recognise her own self-worth and be aware of her own rights. She must be unafraid to voice out her thoughts and raise against social injustices.
