Without gender equality, the women empowerment is meaningless. Do you agree with the statement? Give two examples in support of your answer.


Yes, I agree with the statement. Gender equality is necessary for women empowerment. We can understand it with the help of the following examples:

  1. If the women are empowered to do jobs but are paid less as compared to their male counterparts then this empowerment is meaningless.
  2. If women are educated but don’t share equal status and power in family and society and are denied their rightful places, then their education is of no use.

Thus, from the above examples we can conclude that gender equality is very much necessary for women empowerment.
