Women Empowerment and Poverty

Advertisements

Solution

One of the most important linkage is between poverty, underdevelopment and women. The majority of women in different parts of the world are poor owing to cultural norms and values, gendered division of assets and property, and unequal power equations between men and women. Women and girls bear an unequal burden of unpaid domestic responsibilities and are overrepresented in informal jobs. The world witnessed the rise of feminist movements in the early 19th century. Since then, the social, political and economic rights of women were constantly asserted. They broadly talked about gender equality- equal rights, social equality, political equality, gender justice, etc. Later in the 1970s, women empowerment came to be accepted as an important concept and philosophy. Empowerment is a process by which oppressed persons gain control over their own lives. It helps them to get basic necessities of life.
