Economic empowerment of women through micro-enterprises in India

Poverty is a crucial problem for all developing and under developed countries. India is no exception to this. The problem can be tackled effectively through providing sustainable livelihood opportunities to women who are the cruellest victims of poverty. Gender inequalities have resulted in the concentration of women in unorganized sectors and unequal pay for equal work. Even then, studies on women’s contribution to household income reveal that women tend to contribute a higher proportion of their income for family sustenance while men spend more for their personal comforts. In spite of these, women of the country have only secondary status in the society. Women are generally under employed due to their limited command over resources.

To be empowered, it is imperative that women mobilize and organize themselves. When groups of women do this process together, they reinforce each other and the strength of the collective has a great role. Together, they are able to identify their own problems and priorities. They can frame strategies to be used to struggle for change, whether it is for resources or for changes in gender relations at home or in the society.

Empowerment is a process that addresses all sources and structures of power. The process has to work both at individual and collective level. Individually poor women cannot overcome powerlessness. They can do it only collectively. Hence it is suggested that women have to be organized and have to be acknowledged as a political force. It involves equal participation in decision making, control over resources and mechanisms for sustaining these gains.

Empowerment of women means making women economically independent, self- reliant, confident and positive in attitude. Empowerment of women is perceived as crucial to the development and growth of family and community. Empowerment ensures that social justice becomes the legitimate criterion in all stages of human development
