The World is Yours!

'Women Empowerment' is a huge topic to discuss. There are some places where girls are getting married before attaining their maturity and society ignores such things. We are living in 21st century Era. What should we do?

While our country is moving towards development still many girls are facing major difficulties in terms of education, equality, security, lifestyle and many more. On each and every step she has gone through hurdles. They can be in buses while travelling, the kind of clothes she wears and many more. In India, great living examples are there like Sania Mirza (Sania Mirza is a professional Indian tennis player), Saina Nehwal (ranked No. 1 in the world by Badminton World Federation Women's Singles), Mary Kom (five-time World Amateur Boxing champion, and the only woman boxer to have won a medal in each of the six world championships), Tejaswini Sawant (Indian shooter from the Maharashtrian city of Kolhapur) and many more. Girls have achieved in each and every field; it can be Sports, Art, Drama etc. 
 Women Empowerment
I want to share the most important thing. In my community, girls are taking higher education and boys are spending/living life on their parents’ wealth/money, and in some cases, if family is not supportive then the girl has to marry before 18 years of age. If family supports then they are facing difficulties to find the right guy who is educated more than the girl. We’ve written essays and given many speeches on "Equality" saying that there isn't any difference between girls and boys but the society creates a difference.

While Government has advertised many schemes, facilities and services to empower women in order to make them independent changes are happening slowly in the society. Nowadays, media is the best way to convey things. But, when I saw news where they showcased wardrobe malfunction happening to a celebrity, literally, I was shocked when I saw those pictures. Photographers shoot her from all possible angles and news channels showcase that news as "Breaking News"While some people are making efforts to change the mentality, on the other side, these people are doing such things. They are misusing their rights.

Now also girls are fighting over the label called "Feminine". It’s about Empowerment for me. It’s not about being more powerful than men but it’s about having equal rights with protection, support, and justice, which are the most important things. We have to fight for this, not at all easy to achieve. Power can be taken, but not given. The process of taking is "Empowerment".
Earth revolves around the sun. Likewise this World's Life cycle revolves around Women. Entire world doesn't deal with women empowerment; so, you have to empower yourself in order to face any type of struggle. None can make you feel lesser without your assent. Always say,

I am strong,
I am beautiful,
I am fearless,
I am sage,
I am a lover....

The World is yours!!!!!
