Abstract:

Women constitute about 50% of the total population but they form 9% of the total productive workforce. The main reason for this poor share is low literacy level among women. When this major chunk is educated, no doubt they can contribute significantly for the development of the country. Women empowerment is a global issue. Empowerment is an active multi-dimensional process which enables women to realize their full identity and powers in all spheres of life. In this context, a study was conducted among graduate students of Saran district. The samples of graduate students were selected by purposively sampling technique by selecting 25 students each from Chapra town and village of Saran district. The selected villages were namely Gurdahakhurd, Sugharchhapra, Madipur and Thana bazaar. The data was collected using a specially designed interview schedule. Result of the study revealed that most of the graduate students residing in village of Saran district were unaware about distance education but majority of student of Chapra town were well known to distance education and women empowerment so it can be concluded that due to lack of tools of education, additional knowledge, lack of exposure, they are unknown to the ongoing method of distance education through open universities. Additionally the basic tools and techniques of imparting education is missing in both the villages and towns of Saran district. The only difference that can be observed between the two different socials set-ups is outlook and thought process towards higher education where the deciding factor takes the shape of exposure and awareness about the countless benefits of education.
