Women’s empowerment is critical for the health and socioeconomic development of every country. Women may attain their greatest potential when they live lives that are safe, fulfilling, and productive. They can contribute their abilities to the workforce while also raising happier and healthier families. Women’s empowerment and the promotion of women’s rights have developed as part of a major global movement that has been breaking new ground in the last few years. Days like International Women’s Empowerment Day, which is celebrated on March 8 every year, are also gaining momentum.

Nonetheless, despite significant progress, women and girls continue to become victims of bias in every country.
