There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women – Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations.

Everybody is fast paced towards empowering the disempowered women in their communities. There is a growing awareness and people are talking more about women empowerment. Many are attending TED conferences, conducting workshops, arranging for motivational speakers and enabling community leaders to bring up changes in the lives of women. Still, why there are gaps and things not getting much better?

When we are focusing our energies towards empowering women, we inadvertently avoid addressing the issues arising out of men being in charge of empowered women. There is a critical gap in awareness creation among men. When women are growing in stature in every field as per the wishes of the modern society, there are still people thinking that women can’t match to the level of men. Amelia Earhart had rightly said once “women, like men, should try to do the impossible. And when they fail, their failure should be a challenge to others.”

It must be remembered that we, the women of this society are responsible for our upliftment and no one else. After marriage, family responsibilities keep crawling in and are really important for women. We have to think beyond our family responsibilities, about the purpose of our existence. Nowadays, women have been taught to fly high and encouraged to pursue their dreams.

It is important to lend her a helping hand. This is enough to break all the stereotypes surrounding her and to create wonders. Sharing is more powerful than creating divides based on gender. It is important to note that the word ‘HE’ is preceded by the letter ‘S’. This in itself symbolises the importance of support. Men still stands as the backbone in creating an empowered womenfolk.

I, Sarika Ahuja, a She Connectian, pledge to empower not only women all around and help them to realize their dreams but also men to come forward and uplift women.
