Dr. Jatinder Kaur
Journal Title:GLOBAL JOURNAL FOR RESEARCH ANALYSIS
After independence, empowerment of women has always remained the major thrust of Indian plans and policies.
Besides floating various schemes exclusively for the well-being of the women, many stringent laws have also been
enacted from time to time to narrow down the huge gender gap which persisted at that time. This paper is an attempt
to study how far these efforts have been successful in bridging that gap and empowering Indian women.
