Women empowerment is understood as a very narrow term in today’s world. Women’s empowerment should focus on the holistic manifestation of womanhood and the feminine with a goal to bring a perfect balance between the masculine and the feminine forces of the nature irrespective of gender. Thus women’s empowerment should transcend the gender and reach the whole of humanity to establish a matriarchal society based on creative and generative action. Such a social order should be based on the principles of love, compassion, nurturing and with a purpose of unifying the forces of nature.
For this to happen in reality the primary requirement is the social, economic, religious and political empowerment of women. Women have to come out of their homes and actively participate in reshaping the society. When women are empowered in all spheres of life with an equal opportunity and when she has the choice and opportunity to lead a publicly active life only then we can talk about a foundation being created for a collective change in the society.
We need to understand that the more economically, socially, religiously and politically empowered the women becomes, the more confident she becomes in articulating her thoughts and more productive she becomes in her actions. This results in her getting involved in taking decisions for her family, the society, the country and the world along with her counterparts that is men.
But this is not the reality as we see today. Today’s structures are still patriarchal in nature which is based on power and control. In this kind of setup there is a visible or invisible glass ceiling for women. Women cannot move up the ladder beyond a point. That’s why all the major power structures in all walks of life are still controlled by men. The consequences of these lop-sided male dominated structures are enormous to see. Womanhood and the whole of the feminine gender are marginalized in this kind of setup. Further these patriarchal structures are responsible for the division of the society and they promote highly self-oriented materialistic structures based on manipulations and never ending exploitation of natural resources.
Women empowerment in all walks of life shall bring the necessary balance that is required in nature. It will help in promoting structures which are more inclusive, progressive, creative, constructive and generative in nature and which are in sync with nature.
There is a long way still to go before we see Women empowerment become a reality. Economic empowerment of women is the first step towards this direction. The more the woman becomes economically empowered, the more progressive she becomes in the other spheres of life.
Therefore it is imperative to study and analyze the empowerment of women around the world and find out ways towards achieving total women empowerment in every sphere of life.
