Online Submission, Proceedings of the National Education Meet: Mapping New Terrains for 21st Century Women (Nalanchira, Thiruvanthapram, Kerala, India, 2014)
This article explores theoretical and practical issues related to the impact of women's education in their empowerment. The development of women's education is discussed in this study. As women's education has become one of the key development objectives in the recent decades, the concept of empowerment has been tied to the range of activities undertaken by and for women in different areas, including education. Empowerment of women through education in 21st century is the most important tool that can help break the pattern of gender discrimination and bring lasting change for women in developing countries. Educated women are essential to ending gender bias, starting by reducing the poverty that makes discrimination even worse in the developing world. No longer is gender equality viewed solely as a social justice issue. Ensuring that women have the same opportunity to rights, resources and voice within a society is widely recognized as essential to that society's growth and development. A bibliography is provided.
