Women's Strength


"Nature gave women too much power. The laws give them too little." – William Henry


India is a democratic and political state with well-managed governance and already a mixed economy, with extensive experience in the private sector. Also available in India is a huge stock of skilled manpower and entrepreneurship, a pretty good infrastructure and a good achievement to meet previous international commitments.

In this highly competitive world, society's development is highly influenced by the productive contribution of each Member State. Women can not be rewarded in different walks of life. But experience shows that the benefits of development are not equal to all the people's share.

Women's status in Indian society:

Since then, elderly women were challenged to deal with the male chauvinistic community. Even after a few years of planned development in India, women's status in our country is low and their social and economic conditions are much more depressed than men. The most important factor that has influenced women's participation in decision-making and governance is a private-public department in relation to men and women. Women's place is in the private property related to the home. The public is connected with political sources, public decision making, work and manners. Such assumptions have always prevented women from negotiating the public, and they find themselves either criticized for inadequate or protected people. Recent experience of organized adaptation shows that women are the most poor parts. They are intended for an excessively larger share of burdens, preferences and unemployment.

Women's Challenges:

o Sexual Disease in Schools and Literature

o Sexual Disease in Salaries

o Women's Work and Lifestyle

o Infant and Maternal Womens

o Limiting fertility management methods

o Violence against women

o Women's illness in crisis situations

o Women's show in the media

Grave Damage in some areas:

Women's marginalization of a particular type has established women with hereditary clothes. It is now widely accepted that unless women determine "critical mass" at least one third of those who decide that their presence is a small difference in management results. Experience from different countries shows that the struggle is, but the general gender as an organization and cultural transformation process should continue to eliminate gender issues in development and governance.

Education and Technology:

The development in the broadest sense is to improve quality of life, which generally calls for better education, greater health and nutrition, cleaner environment, greater equal opportunities, greater individual freedom and richer cultural life. Evolution, being a human-mediated process is obvious, but until women reach the same foot, and men need special attention on the conquest. Strength is a multidimensional process that enables individuals to realize their potential. In view of the above background, it is clear that women's strengths will change the destiny of nations.

Education is the most important instrument in which human resources can be developed. Education allows people to acquire basic knowledge and raise skills that help to increase the social and economic status of women. Education helps to increase women's economic opportunities. Higher women's education is associated with better hygiene, lower infant mortality, better family orientation, less fertility and lower population levels. Education has been included in the successful five-year program as the main program for women's development.

Today, women are an integral part of a new economic rule and play an important role in the economy. In India, women in lower income categories were the first to enter the labor market to earn their livelihoods that followed women in the middle class. Due to the development of education and technology, women in the middle class have more emphasis on white collar jobs. The economic and social strength of women in any society affects the extent of their participation in income from outside the home. An important role is being played by the self-help groups in order to overcome the economic and social status of women in society.

Self Help Group is a homogeneous group of rural volunteers who are volunteered to save what amount they can save comfortably from their income and agree to contribute to a joint fund, lend to members to meet their needs and emergencies . The basics of self-help groups are group approaches, mutual trust, the organization of poor, affordable small groups, coordination groups, obsession, demand-based lending and women-friendly loans. SHG has been rapidly emerging as a powerful and substitute banking institution to meet the needs of its members mainly women.

In general, women's self-esteem as respectable strength improves significantly within and outside the family. Their income is spent on them for the education and improvement of their children's nutrition, thus reducing the development of human resources in villages.
