The progress of empowerment should be speeded up. The concept of women self help groups in rural and urban areas is a big hit among poor women, as it makes them self-reliant and independent. Self made women entrepreneurs are increasing. To encourage more women, the banks should sanction more loans and financial assistance with less interest for studies and entrepreneurship. Parents should allow girls to choose the course of their choice and professions of interest. The Government should increase reservations for women in education, employment and administration.
