The end of Women Empowerment and Security Week was marked by a very progressive announcement in the state of Uttarakhand. The Chief Minister, Pushkar Singh Dhami, of the Bhartiya Janta Party, made declarations regarding a very important scheme that his State Government intends to launch very soon. He mentioned, “Working through self-help groups, women in remote hill areas of the state are steering the rural economy.
With their skills, they are also strengthening the economy of their homes”, as he observed single women’s hard work and struggles. Women have been working independently, and in the remote regions, they continue to strive to earn bread irrespective of their difficult situations. They have proved in various instances that they have walked in pace with men.
Self-help groups support women in rural areas and employ their skills to make a living. Such women are maintaining the financial consistency of their homes but also the rural economy of the nation. The Women Empowerment and Child Development Minister, Rekha Arya mentioned that various schemes have been working toward women empowerment. She has strongly advocated that eligible women must avail themselves of these schemes for the betterment of their personal selves, families, and the nation.
