‘EMPOWERMENT’ may be described as a process which helps people to assert their control over the factors which affect their lives. Empowerment of women means developing them as more aware individuals, who are politically active, economically productive and independent and are able to make intelligent discussion in matters that affect them.
The most common explanation of 'women's empowerment' is the ability to exercise full control over one's actions. The last decades have witnessed some basic changes in the status and role of women in our society. There has been shift in policy approaches from the concept of 'welfare' in the seventies to 'development' in the eighties and now to 'empowerment' in the nineties. This process has been further accelerated with some sections of women becoming increasingly self-conscious of their discrimination in several areas of family and public life. They are also in a position to mobilize themselves on issues that can affect their overall position.
Empowerment is a major step in this direction but it has to be seen in a relational context. A clear vision is needed to remove the obstacles to the path of women's emancipation both from the perspective of government as well as women themselves. Efforts should be directed towards all round development of each and every section of Indian women by giving them their due share. In consideration of the welfare of women, Nadar Saraswathi College of Engineering and Technology, Theni established the WOMEN EMPOWERMENT CELL in August 2014 to empower women and to create awareness of Women’s Right. About 60% of the faculty members & students are women in our College.
A Society in which, women attain their full potential and are able to participate as equal partners in all spheres of life and influence the process of social change.
To create an effective frame work to enable the process of developing policies, programmes and practices which will ensure equal rights and opportunities for women in the family, community, workplace and in governance.
