Women empowerment is empowering the women to take their own decisions for their personal dependent. Economically empowering women is to make them independent in all aspects from mind, thought, rights, decisions, etc. by leaving all the social and family limitations. It is to bring equality in the society for both male and female in all areas. Women empowerment in rural areas is very necessary to make the bright future of the family, society and country. The focus should not be merely on political empowerment only in urban areas. Now, the focus should be on how to empower rural women in order to build a connection between them and women in urban areas. Women are not helpless in face of existing challenges. Around the world they are decision-makers for themselves, their families, villages, businesses, and governments. Women’s economic empowerment means that women have the authority to make their own decisions regarding use of their resources, leads to prosperity for families and communities. In addition, economic empowerment can pave the way for women to be empowered politically. Political empowerment allows women to take control of the policies that will benefit their economic standing.
