The position of women started deteriorating after the first millennia. Though our constitution and many other legislative acts have promoted gender equality, their status continues to be low. The empowerment of women concerns women gaining control and power over their own lives. It involves awareness raising, building self-confidence, and expansion of choices, increased access to and control over resources. Inputs to promote the empowerment of women should facilitate the articulation of their needs and priorities and more active role in promoting these needs and priorities. But the reality is horrible still the discrimination is going on against women. Women are fifty per cent of the total population, but are they respected? Are they enjoyed with their rights?. Based on secondary data this paper has been discussed about the barriers for the women empowerment.
