Joydeb Nayek JCR. 2020: 2163-2168
Today women empowerment is one of the most important concerns with respect to the growth of the society. Women empowerment is the process in which women elaborate and recreate what it is that they can be do and accomplish in a circumstance that they previously were denied. We observe in our day to day life how women become victimized by various social evils. From equal status with men in ancient times, through the low points of the medieval period, to the promotion of equal rights by many reformers. One of them is Mahatma Gandhi. In this paper, an attempt is made to understand the views of Mahatma Gandhi on women and foresee the relevance of his philosophy in twenty – first century India. His views on different aspects on women such as purdha system, equality of sex, dowry system, widow remarriage, divorce, women education, birth control etc. has been described. Considering the fact that Gandhi has believed in the empowerment of women a decade ago, but still its relevance is and will be necessited in every phase of time.
