Political empowerment involves increasing women’s representation and participation in decision-making processes and leadership roles. This can be achieved through measures such as implementing quotas for women in politics and promoting gender-sensitive policies and laws.
Economic empowerment involves improving women’s access to education, training, and employment opportunities, as well as providing them with the resources and skills they need to participate fully in the economy. This can be done through initiatives such as providing micro-financing and business training for women entrepreneurs and promoting equal pay for equal work.
Social empowerment involves challenging and changing cultural and social norms that perpetuate gender inequality and discrimination. This can be done through education and awareness-raising programs, as well as through the media and popular culture, which can help to shift attitudes and beliefs.

Ms. Kulkarni, please don’t apologise ‘IF’ you think you hurt women. Apologise because you got your facts wrong. Apologise for making sexual harassment a casual joke.
If Sonali Kulkarni’s speech on most modern Indian women being lazy left me shocked and enraged, her apology post left me deeply saddened.
I’d shared my thoughts on her problematic speech in an earlier article. So, I’ll share why I felt Kulkarni’s apology post was more damaging than her speech.
If her speech made her an overnight hero among MRAs, sexists, and people who were awed by her dramatic words, then her apology post made her a legendary saint.
There are many mountains I need to climb just to be, just to live my life, just to have my say... because they are mountains you've built to oppress women.
Trigger Warning: This deals with various kinds of violence against women including rape, and may be triggering for survivors.
I haven’t climbed a literal mountain yet
Was busy with the metaphorical ones – born a woman
Fighting for the air that should have come free
And I am one of the privileged ones, I realize that
Yet, if I get passionate, just like you do
I will pay for it – with burden, shame, – and possibly a life to carry
So, my mountains are the laws you overturn
My mountains are the empty shelves where there should have been pills
