A very common word that has been on the tongue of everyone these days is women empowerment .Much has been said about how and what facilities should be given to empower women in our country .Apart from special provisions granted in the field of education and career ,there are a few points which are necessary to adopt here .
Facilities are of no use if the women themselves are not willing to be empowered .It is very important to think firstly that, they are strong enough to tackle their problems and to deal with suitability. The key to handle our life is with us and it is on us to use it the way we want.
It is essential to know what is my aim and which is the best way available to achieve it .A woman knows her weakness and strength .The path suggested by others may not suit her .For example, a woman knows better which way she is comfortable ,whether working with men or women ? Same way, does she prefer individuality or remaining in group?etc.
Age has no bounds. The learning process is continuous till the last breathe .A woman must keep herself open to learn new things .Life never becomes stagnant after any phase .The age after forty is the age to rejuvenate oneself .By this time most of the liabilities are covered .So the time comes when a woman refreshes herself .
The hobbies or the desires which had become past days’ memory are to be taken up now .It will boost you up and you will inspire yourself .This enhances your inner beauty and the joy of being engaged in a constructive work makes you proud of yourself . I can cite the example of plenty of such women who have excelled in their projects which were taken up in their later ages .I know one such lady who in her sixties hired up the catering business as she loved cooking but somehow could not find time to start up in her early days .In my neighborhoods I have seen a young widow running her boutique nicely .Once she was not allowed to talk to any outsiders as the family members were so orthodox. She used to keep herself in veil .Time changed as the older members of family passed away gradually, then she came in forefront to run her family business. Women empowerment does not mean strength to protect oneself .It is the inner strength which fills a woman with confidence, self respect and innovation .One should be courageous to move alone from one place to another and to do most of the works from her own end instead of being dependent on others.
A little knowledge of working online is also required as we all are connected globally now .One must know operating bank account or sending formal mails etc .Getting awareness about handling internet and newer features of mobile are ought to be known .It will help them cover a large area sitting in the corner of the house. Last but not the least ,be a socialized person .Socialization helps in the interaction of ideas .Moreover ,as is said ,birds of same feathers flock together ,so formation of groups with the persons having same interests would help you learn more ideas and tricks of growth and solutions to shortcomings .
Women empowerment means more responsibilities at the home as well as in the office or at the business. A good relation with family members and colleagues provides you mental peace .It may provide you a stronger platform to overcome your stress and to take decisions in the favor of the largest mass .
