“Promote gender equality and empower women,” This is one of the United Nations’ Millennium Development goals. Currently, it is ranked as one of the most pressing issues in the world.
What boggles my mind the most is despite their contribution we don’t give equal rights or respect to mothers, sisters and daughters of the world. The fact that people are so selfish and self-centered is a cause for concern.
Activists such as Malala Yousufzai and Sunitha Krishnan have decided not be silent spectators. They’ve dared to take a step and now we can see how many follow them.
There are multiple organisations of varying sizes working around the globe to solve this issue such as the UN Women Watch, Women Aid International etc. These organisations don’t target specific aspects of women empowerment like trafficking etc, but look at the big picture. They are usually the medium through which smaller NGOs take action.
In India alone there are multiple NGOs working together to improve the situation nationally, such as Prajwala, iIMPACT and Deepalaya.
