Abstract:
Equality in social systems is a necessary condition for empowerment of women. Development and empowerment are also not synonymous. But women's security, decision-making power, and mobility are three indicators for women's empowerment. In this respect we can say that education is the milestone of women empowerment because it enables them to responds to the challenges, to confront their traditional role and change their life. According to Swami Vivekananda, "education is the manifestation of perfection already in a man". So education is central to the process of sustainable development and is empowering, if its contents are geared towards it. Numerous studies in the last decade, in the international arena have shown, however, that educating the female population in a country helps economic growth, and yet there appears to be no correlation between education, improvement in economic conditions and empowerment of women, that women's status is elusive, multidimensional and hard to measure and it is important to look at different aspects of women's status to understand these complex relationships. According to Pandit J.L. Nehru "If we educate a man you educate an individual, however, if you educate a women you educate a whole family. Women empower means mother India empowered."
