Girls’ education in Himachal Pradesh: A step towards women empowerment


Dr. Sanjeev Kumar

Women empowerment is concerned with the life of women in the family, village and community. Women are exploited at various levels from the ancient times. The position of women is not satisfactory in these levels even in the current era. Therefore, the State Govt. along with the Central Govt. is quite sincere regarding the women empowerment in the country. The present paper deals with women empowerment through girls’ education in Himachal Pradesh. It is girls, and marginalized groups such as the very poor and the disabled, who are often left behind in some areas of the State. While girls attend primary school in roughly equal numbers to boys, the gap widens as they get older and more are forced to drop out to help with work at home or get married. Education is the key to empowering girls, which helps bring about social equality. The enrollment, results of board classes, the schemes implemented in the State for women empowerment are discussed in the paper.
