Every woman’s success should be an inspiration to another. We’re strongest when we cheer each other. Let us all focus on changing the way the world perceives our strength

First slide

It is rightly said that Women don’t need to find a voice, they have a voice, and they need to feel empowered to use it, and people need to be encouraged to listen. Women are capable, powerful, and unstoppable. Women have made the world a better place with their endless strength, determination, and belief, whether they are children, teachers, homemakers, engineers, or doctors. Women are rising above societal difficulties every day, making them a greater force to reckon with in modern times, with enough power to break free from the chains of patriarchy

 

The wave of feminism that started a century ago for women's right to vote has morphed into a raging tide of women empowerment in the twenty-first century. Providing education, skills, and courage to women and girls so that they can accomplish anything and be anyone will enrich the government, community, economy, and humankind as a whole.

 

Women's empowerment can take a variety of forms. Empowering women is ensuring that women have an equal opportunity to engage in all sectors of society. It's about strengthening their self-esteem, accepting their points of view, teaching them, and eventually preparing them to make life-changing decisions. Positioning women strongly is critical to our communities' health and development.

 

Women all across the globe are emerging out of the obscurity of the hearth and seizing leadership roles in fields that were previously thought to be entirely male domains. We have been witnessing examples of female leaders transforming the world with their knowledge and desire for progress both globally and in India.

 

Education is the key

Education is milestone of women empowerment because it enables them to responds to the challenges, to confront their traditional role and change their life. So we can't neglect the importance of education in reference to women empowerment. Education is seen as a critical step toward women's empowerment since it encourages them to encounter obstacles, confront their established roles, and improve their quality of life. Women's education is the most influential defence mechanism for transforming their social status. India can only become a developed country if women contribute to the best of their abilities, which is only achievable if they are educated and empowered.

 

The first year of New Millennium 2001 was declared as "WOMEN EMPOWERMENT YEAR". Education of a women leads to a better family and ultimately an ideal society to a progressive nation. A progressive nation is one where all the people of the country in respective of sex, religion, caste, creed and colour are economically, socially, culturally, politically and through all thoughts are independent. New UNESCO data proves education transforms development. It says that if all children enjoyed equal access to education, per capita income would increase by 23% over 40 years.

 

Education empowers women

Educated girls and young women are more likely to know their rights and to have the confidence to claim them.

 

Education promotes tolerance

Education helps people to understand democracy, promotes the tolerance and trust that underpin it, and motivates people to participate in the political life of their societies.

 

Education equality improves job opportunities and increases economic growth

If all children had equal access to education, productivity gains would boost economic growth. Over 40 years, per capita income would be 23 per cent higher in a country with equality in education.

 

Celebrating achievements   

It is important to educate the students about some of the ordinary women who have accomplished incredible things – even if they aren't on the curriculum – in the spirit of celebration. It's critical for children, especially girls, to be exposed to successful female role models on a regular basis. While successful women in public and political positions are exemplary role models for students, there are also cases closer to home. 

 

Teachers can imprint crucial behavioural patterns and serve as motivating role models. Anyone who educates a girl nearly invariably empowers her. Focusing only on girls' education, on the other hand, will not result in empowered women unless educators are trained and are enthusiastic proponents of gender equality.

 

In schools, women empowerment is all about providing an atmosphere where girls can be themselves, fail, and learn from their mistakes. While academic achievement is important, schools also have a role to play in nurturing students so that they can grow into well-rounded, compassionate adults. Every woman’s success should be an inspiration to another. We’re strongest when we cheer each other. Let us all focus on changing the way the world perceives our strength
