This is a study showing how empowered women are- an open question to answer either way you want.


While interviewed about the perceptions of empowerment of women in the family 58% women who are living in the joint family responded Education as the key factor, while who are living with single family turned out to be 48%. But what makes them empowered in the society is responded differently; for joint and single family women responded Education still the case 37%. For single living women Social status is more valuable 39% than education.  Averagely For empowerment in the society issue education is voted 24 (37%), Finance 26%, Social status 37%.  While the family empowerment Education is 51%, Finance 17%, and social status 32%. From the above study it is found that women have an opportunity to make a choice about at least some key elements relating to their interests in the family.

Secondly, they at least have some opportunity to use their ‘says’ on some aspects of family. Thirdly, there are evidences that the choice resulted in the desired result of the women folks and the rate is in a positive trend.

Women who are working and contributing to the family economy have achieved the right of participation in different forms. The four key elements viz., access to information, inclusion and participation, accountability and local organizational capacity, have been found in an encouraging mode of action and trends are found to be farther improving.

To sum up, the empowerment of women in our society is not depending upon any one or two factors which we normally deemed to be, rather this is a complex socio-economic-cultural issues that are molded together to create phenomenon which make a women empowered in the family and society in our country. Lastly more in depth psychological research is needed for a longer period of time to find our which changes society, values and perceptions in our society. But generally the study shows indeed education, and financial contribution give working women at least some footholds both in the society and family. This makes the society to understand women as human being irrespective of gender focused views.         

What should be done to rectify problems:

1.  Empowerment should be social movement. Attitude of women in the family is needed to be changed positively. Most of the cruelties, family feuding and physical and mental torture of women occur by women directly or indirectly. It is widely said that women are women’s foes.

    I have read about the beauty of bangladeshi women, but I still feel for them when it comes to the culture based violence they go through. I recently wrote an article which portrayed some of the vilest mistrement of women, a professor of a woman was for example blinded by her husband just because she was highly educated. The empowerment the Bangladeshi women need are enabling laws that protect them from domestic and cultural violence. I am told for example, when a women gets raped here and some of the countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan, it is the woman who gets stoned, now this is extremely disheartening because it is the men who perpetuate rape against women, and for the law to be twisted to punish the victim makes me really sad. But the spirit of this article is in the right direction, these women need a multifaceted level of empowerment, including those that protect their dignity.
