Description
 
Empower Women is a response to a grave situation developing in Indian society today: the increasing practice of sex-selection by killing female infants in the womb. The book takes a look at the cultural norms that underpin a deep-rooted tradition of son-preference, draws our attention to the scale of the crisis, and highlights the far-reaching effects of having a society where men outnumber women at an ever increasing rate. The book calls out to our conscience to consider the profound consequences of our actions.

The central thrust of the book is a powerful concept: that our morality is not separate from our spirituality. If we consider ourselves good human beings, then our actions towards the women in our lives must reflect this. Empower Women suggests that far from being a burden, women are among creation's most precious treasures, and it outlines simple ways by which we can empower them.
