“Harnessing 'Woman Power' for the progress and enhancement of society has become imperative in today’s context of rising inequalities and injustice, world over. The fact that the vast majority of women are still unseen, unheard and unsung, is a sad commentary on the priorities and values that guide the leaders and policy makers at every single aspect and level of human interaction. … I am heartened to see a group of young scholars, mainly women, coming together to voice their views on the subject of 'Women Empowerment' and its diverse forms while also pointing out some practical methods to bring about the desired change. The papers here reveal a strong foundation of well-studied opinions and findings.”
