FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE – A MUST FOR WOMEN EMPOWERMENT

Naisha Sujan

Abstract


Women are now gaining impetus in the political field, yet their participation in the economic sphere remains subdued.  Even at the micro level, women tend to shy away from family finances and rely on their male counterparts to deal with the money matters.  The article discusses the need for financial independence of women as a prerequisite to women empowerment. Nuclear family set ups, dual income need, increasing rates of divorces, etchave made it necessary for women to take charge of the much dreaded financial decisions. To be fully empowered, women need to shed their apprehensions and fears and strive to gain enough understanding of the financial matters. This will give them the much needed confidence and will help them secure their future.
