Women Empowerment can be referred to as strengthening the social, economic and educational status of women. It means creating an environment where there is no violence or gender discrimination and where women have equal rights in community, society and workplace.
Today, there is a rape every 29 minutes, a case of molestation every 15 minutes and a dowry death every 4 hours. This is, inhuman for a nation that prides itself for all the dignity it gives to its women as part of its culture and traditions.
Every woman has a right to live , and right to live with dignity and freely express herself! In the present times, various crimes against women are prevalent in India ,including be it domestic violence, cruelty, desertion, or stalking, rape, harassment, extortion or other crimes. Though we have laws protecting women in India yet , the women both in Urban and Rural India face constant threats both online and offline and continue to face discrimination or other unfair acts and crimes whether at home or at their workplace .
