Dr. Vikesh Kumar Sharma

Abstract


The 21st century has been declared as century of women. In this changing scenario the girls need attention by the scholars. After various efforts by government, NGO’s and social scientists the phenomenal women empowerment is not taking real shape due to the ignorance of nutritional status in rural tribal areas. This is indicated by the statistical data. Actually women’s empowerment is not simply switching ON and switching OFF of women energy but is more than this. Women empowerment is a process of learning by which women identify by their own potential and according they charge to perform better in the society. Empowering is not given by anyone but it is a processing of gaining inside and to use it for the adjusted of life. Knowing own potential and feeling it will give a definite shape to the performance.
