Women empowerment

Women's empowerment (or female 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.[1][2][3] Women's empowerment equips and allows women to make life-determining decisions through the different societal problems.[4] They may have the opportunity to re-define gender roles or other such roles, which allow them more freedom to pursue desired goals.[1] Women's empowerment has become a significant topic of discussion in development and economics. Economic empowerment allows women to control and benefit from resources, assets, and income. It also aids the ability to manage risk and improve women's well-being.[5] It can result in approaches to support trivialized genders in a particular political or social context.[6] While often interchangeably used, the more comprehensive concept of gender empowerment concerns people of any gender, stressing the distinction between biological and gender as a role. Women empowerment helps boost women's status through literacy, education, training and awareness creation.[7] Furthermore, women's empowerment refers to women's ability to make strategic life choices that were previously denied them.[8]
