Abstract:

The quality of life and the status of women in a society are perceived to be reflective of the development status of a country. Women’s status in the society, access to resources (material as well non-material) and freedom accorded in decision making is indicative of women empowerment. Although women’s empowerment and the movement towards gender equality is not a recent phenomenon, it continues to evolve and engage the attention of everyone – politicians, researchers, administrators and policy makers- around the world. The process of empowering of the women is influenced by various independent factors called determinant and is a factor or cause that leads directly to decision making by women at various levels. Understanding the different dimensions of women empowerment is therefore important to develop relevant policies and programmes that may help to enhance the gender equality and triggers greater shifts in cultural norms to promote women’s rights. This paper discusses various socio-cultural, economic, psychological, legal and political determinants of women empowerment.
