Nemi Chand

Abstract


Gender equality is beneficial for both society and country. The constitution of India also states right to equality as a fundamental right. Women empowerment is also protected by Art.15 (3) of Constitution of India by making special provisions for women. It has been seen that Women’s socio-political rights were curtailed and they were made fully dependent upon the male members of family. Especially at workplace gender equality is not seen. Women are not paid equal pay for equal work.  The   women empowerment issues and equal rights movement all over the world is reflected in the form of various Conventions passed by the United Nations. The universal declaration of human rights also states all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood. There are several judicial decisions in which judiciary also stated for gender equality and women empowerment. The equality laws should be implemented honestly to bring real equality and empower women.
