Women's empowerment is the process of empowering women. Empowerment can be defined in many ways, however, when talking about women's empowerment, empowerment means accepting and including people (women) who are on the outside of the decision-making process into it. Women’s empowerment is the most crucial point to be noted for the overall development of a country. Healthy, educated, empowered women are better able to contribute to economic • productivity and the socio-economic development of the next generation. Women’s empowerment can also underpin pro-poor demographic transitions. Men and women’s, girls’ and boys’ experiences of poverty differ in important ways.Understanding this is important for tackling the greater levels of deprivation and vulnerability that girls and women routinely face, and for tackling poverty more broadly. Social movements can challenge exploitative relations that hold back livelihoods, andcontest the stereotyping that reinforces chronic poverty. The development community must do everything it can to facilitate an enabling environment for gender-aware social movements. Promoting and protecting human and civil rights, and a strong and autonomous legal system, are key first steps.
