Empowerment means giving authority, strength or confidence to someone. Empowerment elevates the spirits of the person who has been empowered and gives him courage to chase his dreams. The whole and soul way of empowering people is to educate them. Education is one sure-shot way of unlocking the latent potential of all and sundry. In the words of Barbara Jordan, “Education remains the key to both economic and political empowerment.” Education makes you able enough to choose between the right and the wrong and to make your decisions. Education is the key to mass empowerment.
Women empowerment has been the issue of hot debate in Asian countries where females are suppressed and confined within the four walls of the house. The women have to understand that power has to be fought for; it won’t be given that easily. In the words of Gloria Steinem, “Power can be taken, but not given. The process of the taking is empowerment in itself.”
