Women have hardly any say in decision making, in our country. Before taking any decision they need the consent of their father, brother or husband. Without consent their life doesn’t work. The society does not let it work. Women’s participation in decision making decreases with the lack of their education. But again women needs the consent of their parents for that too. From getting education to marrying the guy of their choice none of these decisions are finalized by women. And this is not only limited to their homes. The lack of say in decision making by women highly prevails in workplaces too, where women are often silenced and not given heed to. They are considered unworthy for decision making in comparison to men.
Women are all- rounders! They are capable of working, earing, looking after their family, their children, managing their household and their opinions should be given importance to when it comes to decision making. It is important to reiterate the fact that women’s empowerment is something that we need to work on every single day.
