We can look at the empowerment of women in the different countries and how it has changed the perspective of a woman from the old times to now where they have the unlimited possibilities. Looking at a country like India, It’s evident that women had the4 equal rights as the men but with the progression of time, all their rights were taken away from them in the colonial period. They were subjected to child marriages and slavery.
Some few years back, I visited India and one thing that was quite evident is that prostitution was being practiced in public. Both children and adults were practicing it. In as much as we fight for the empowerment of the girl child, it’s their parents who expose them to such activities. This is how they earned their living. They never felt the need to hide because prostitution in India is legal.
Some of the Indians that were enlighten about the nature of a woman stood up to fight for the freedom of the women. The likes of Mahatma Gandhi fought for the end of child marriages that had become popular in the British rule in India. The rulers and their fathers fought and a constitution was made that protected the women and gave them an equal right in their country. (Steve, 2018)
Looking at Africa, empowerment started in the late 1900. Slavery and discrimination was the thing and there was no freedom. With increased women standing up to fight for the rights, women became more vocal about their situations and learning that they could stand a better chance like that of the men. For many years Africans, have been viewed in a certain way where the woman is inferior. Acceptance of who they are and knowing that they could do much lead to the rise as seen during the colonial period where women were also the ‘men’ in their communities. Some were the leaders of their societies that lead them to the fight of the colonials. Advancement has really changed who and what we are.
