Indian Women are finally starting to participate in the social and economic improvement of their country more than ever before.
The education of girls, although still a work-in-progress, is at an all-time high and has resulted in the influx of qualified women getting ready to work and make a change for the better.
Empowering the women of India is a job for all citizens, no matter what Gender, so that society as a whole can benefit.
Educating girls from a young age is the best way to empower them and build their self-confidence that will later translate into their professional and personal lives. Encouraging them and supporting them throughout their tertiary studies or technical training, results in them being able to achieve financial independence and become an asset to their family and their country.
A large portion of women in India are housewives that are unskilled and unable to find financially secure work. Vocational training and part-time work needs to be created to empower these women and give them the chance to live better lives.
A safer working environment is one way to encourage women to become a bigger part of the workforce. Knowing that they will be safe in their place of work is an incentive for women to feel confident in finding some sort of employment.
Gender inequality is a hot topic that should not be avoided. Women today are able to get their degrees and run companies all over the world, as well as in India. Salaries should reflect their skill levels and not discriminate based on someone’s gender.
Although society has learned to recognize the intellectual power of women, the old patriarchal rules still put a halt to their social and economic growth. India is slowly coming to terms with the new-found power of the modern woman and it is necessary to move forward with the times to create a harmonious society.
