Today we live in a world of sharp contrasts. There has been great progress in human life style and economic development. At the same time, deep-rooted social and political imbalances continue to constrain opportunities for many of the world‟s poor and marginalized, especially women. Women constitute nearly half of the population of the world. But, in spite of this fact they have never received requisite attention, rather many a time they have been neglected. Indian society is a multilingual, multicultural society subdivided by remarkable caste, creed and gender differences. In the chequred social system in India, women not only find themselves in variegated positions - both favorable and unfavorable but have to cope with the different social norms and traditions that have been framed through the ages. The empowerment of women is an essential precondition for the elimination of world poverty and the upholding of human rights. This concept is accompanied with, freedom, self-determination and power, which are necessary for the women all over the world. Since education and employment are key factors in empowerment of women in most of the societies, there is much theoretical and practical studies that stress educational and employment opportunities as critical means for women to attain control over their lives. But this does not realize in practical sense. Empowerment of working women has a positive impact on families as an income earner, a facilitator and a care taker of the children and other members of the family and also for the growth and development of the children of the schools. From gender equality perspective, empowering have a sustained impact on gender relations in the community and in society, at large. This paper is an attempt to quantify women empowerment with the help of a balanced empowerment strategy score.
