Women Empowerment: Their Right, NOT A Grant!
In all civilizations, women have been playing their role to assist their families. Since the beginning of time, women have been indulged in development of society in one way or the other. While talking about women empowerment, common perception is that this phenomenon benefits women only. Whereas, the beneficiaries of women empowerment are all; including men, women, society, community and the overall economy of a country.
