Problems of Women’s Empowerment

Problems of Women’s Empowerment

Situation of Women in Bangladesh: Almost every country, no matter how progressive, has a history of ill-treating women. In other words, women from all over the world have been rebellious to reach the status they have today. While the western countries are still making progress, third-world countries like Bangladesh still lag behind in Women Empowerment.

Gender Inequality: As women were not allowed to make decisions for them, women’s empowerment came in like a breath of fresh air. It made them aware of their rights and how they must make their own place in society rather than depending on a man. It recognized the fact that things could not simply work in someone’s favor because of their gender. However, we still have a long way to go when we talk about the reasons why we need it.

Danger of Honor Killings: In Bangladesh, women’s empowerment is needed more than ever. Bangladesh is amongst the countries which are not safe for women. There are various reasons for this. Firstly, women in Bangladesh are in danger of honor killings. Their family thinks it’s right to take their lives if they bring shame to the reputation of their legacy.

Lack of Education and Freedom: Moreover, the education and freedom scenario is very regressive here. Women are not allowed to pursue higher education; they are married off early. The men are still dominating women in some regions, like it’s the woman’s duty to work for him endlessly. They do not let them go out or have freedom of any kind.

Domestic violence: In addition, domestic violence is a major problem in Bangladesh. The men beat up their wives and abuse them as they think women are their property, more so because women are afraid to speak up. Similarly, women who actually work get paid less than their male counterparts. It is downright unfair and sexist to pay someone less for the same work because of their gender. Thus, we see how women empowerment is the need of the hour. We need to empower these women to speak up for themselves and never be a victim of injustice.
