Empowerment refers to policies and measures designed to increase the degree of autonomy and self-determination in the lives of the people and in communities in order to enable them to represent their interest in a responsible and self-determined way, acting on their own authority. It provides a greater access to knowledge and resources, more independence in decision making, considerable ability to plan lives, and freedom from customs, beliefs and practices. Thus women empowerment is a process in which women challenge the existing norms and culture, to effectively promote their well-being. The Indian Constitution guarantees that there shall be no discrimination on the ground of gender. There are various legal provisions for women’s protection and empowerment in Indian Constitution but in reality half of the population is unaware of their legal rights. In this paper we will discuss about the constitutional and some specific legislations which has been enacted by the Government of India from time to time for the protection and empowerment of women.
