“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights,” says world-renowned women activist Gloria Steinem. People like Gloria Steinem, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama have been in the forefront for women empowerment. Women empowerment has been a significant topic of discussion across countries and centuries. The word empowerment means autonomy and self-determination for women to forge their independent identities.
The pages of history from ancient to modern have witnessed some phenomenal women who have gone against societal norms and emerged as leaders of change. For centuries, women fought for their rights all over the world to make their voices heard. The culmination of these protests and struggles across oceans resulted in the declaration of 8th March as International Women’s Day. It was a significant moment in history as prior to that declaration, numerous women and men have come forward to fight for women issues like violence, child marriage, right to education and equal pay.
