SKILL UPGRADATION (BASED ON SOCIO ECONOMIC) FOR WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT TRAINING PROGRAMME OF SHG :
The emancipation of women from the strangle hood of dogmas and ignorance and the women’s struggle for rights has a long history. The last three decades, specially have brought these issues to forefront of social consciousness. All over the world women’s are awakening. No longer are they willing to remain silent in the face of oppression. They are finding their voices and the strength to fight. Now women are still under the yoke of exploitation. They have been rendered helpless by hundreds of years of imposed ignorance, superstition and inferiority complexes. The opportunists who have taken advantage of women fail to realize that by paralyzing women’s mind, the whole society becomes crippled. Now, for society to move forward, women must regain their self-confidence and take their rightful place in society.
We (society) are not as developed as we should be Why ? One of the reason is that society have kept women confined within the walls of their homes, resulting in the progress of only fifty percent of the population.
The dignity and rightful status of women must be re-established in both the collective and individual life. A true human society can only be created when all its members, male & female, young and old, black & white have equal opportunity to express all their potentialities in the mundane, psychic and ethical spheres. The emancipation of women to take place in the social sphere. Simply put, there are two points : first, women must become educated; secondly, women must become economically self-reliant.
Through education, women will become free from superstitions and dogmas that have been imposed on them. They will learn how to take care of their bodies, of their minds. They will learn the hidden history of women’s contribution to society. They will gain not only intellectual wealth, but the necessary self-confidence to employ that wealth for the benefit of the society.
When women gain economic independence from men, they will also win back respect. Dowry and other social ills will die natural death. As women gain economic self-reliance, they will gain a voice in the household as well as in the society-at-large. Men will not be able to impose their whims on women who are no longer economically chained to them.
Social, religious, and educational dogmas that oppress women will go the way of Slavery, and Sati. Women will find new opportunities for self-development, and in return be able to employ their special qualities for the benefit of all.
