Society has no other tool for development more effective than the empowerment of a woman. Empowering women doesn’t mean giving power to women, but That’s why a particular day can’t be specific for them. Nevertheless, we need a specific date to salute their strength, struggle, and contribution to our society. March 8, 1975, was recognized by the United Nations as “International Women’s Day”.
The fight for women’s equality is a continuous phenomenon. Equality can seal their full freedom and self-reliance through their livelihood. Not only the government of the country needs to come forward for their self-reliance, but women should have to participate more in the government sector. In 1996 a 33% seat reservation bill was introduced in the Indian Parliament. Although passed in the Rajya Sabha, it is still not resolved in the Lower House. Out of the total 3 million 60 thousand workers in the country, only 3 lakh 36 thousand women are directly employed in government jobs. It is only 10% as a percentage. There is a great need to increase the participation of women in the workplace, especially in the public sector.
