Empowering women is one of the most crucial concerns of the developmental Goals of the United Nations.

Women's empowerment is a process whereby women become aware of their true potentialities, organize themselves in an efficient manner in terms of being self-reliance, and aware of their independent rights to make choices.

Education is the best weapon to change the world (Nelson Mandela). Education plays a vital role in empowering women and girls. It is the key factor for women empowerment, prosperity, development and welfare.

According to many research studies, majority of the women is subject of inequality, vulnerability, traditional gender stereotypes and are suppressed and oppressed in all spheres of life, they need to be empowered through education indeed that enlightens them with the knowledge of knowing oneself, rights, freedom, justice and economic stability.

Women and girls are a powerful force for change. when we place them at center of development, we can breakdown the cycle of poverty. We can help them to be prevented with early marriage, marrying only after setting up career and completing higher level of education, and become financially independent, choosing the right time for pregnancies after marriage.

We cannot eliminate extreme poverty without focusing on women and girls, and the barriers that prevent them from reaching their potential. When women and girls are placed at the center of development many positive effects can be observed in the form of positive ripple, effect across their families, communities and nations. We have the opportunity to witness world as heaven place to live in as world becomes more stable, secure, resilient and prosperous.

In accessing women and girls to education family should also have strong role. If any cultural barriers are preventing them, it should be identified and need to solve the problems of the particular barrier.

Similarly, Government and NGOs should also take very strong initiation in educating girls and women to have healthy nation free from social absurdities. Education is a vital human right and plays a key role in human, social and economic development.

Restricted access to education is one of the surest way of transmitting poverty from generation to generation. Education can promote gender equality, reduce child marriage, and promote peace and prosperity.

Empowering women starts with you. Motivating women and girls deliver their best out of their best capacity is what we should do. Helping women and girls realize their strengths makes them display their talents and skills. It can make positive changes especially to those women and girls who are vulnerable.
