Women empowerment is talking about the rights of a woman. Empowerment is allowing and accepting women in the decision-making process. Women's empowerment has been the most crucial part of the development of a country or humankind. Empowerment is the process that gives power to an individual over their own lives, as we all are very well aware of the fact that in earlier times women were not allowed to live their life according to their wishes. Empowerment gives them the right to take a stand for themselves in the society and the community. Empowerment not only includes the human rights of a woman in a community but also raises the status of a woman through education, awareness, literacy, and training to defend themselves.
The struggle of a woman
For many decades, women have been struggling for their fundamental rights, equal to men, and given opportunities. Women have come a long way and are still fighting for equality. Nevertheless, we have been living in a dominant male world. A woman is only supposed to sit at home and cook and take care of everyone but not herself. A woman is expected to keep herself quiet and do everything to please others, no matter what she is going through. A married woman is expected to stay with her husband and do as she told by her husband. This raises the domestic violence issue. As women cannot leave her husband no matter how badly he beats her; but society always tells women to stay quiet and tolerate all the hurtful things. The males of our society have snatched a woman's happiness and locked her in a room where she is forced to become a submissive.
It all started with toxic gender norms. A male is treated differently from a female, which has become critical even in today's world.
The majority of men believe that women are not strong enough and have to be dependent on men to survive. Men only do 20-30% of household work, and this also an exception for many people as most men do not even do any household chores. Gender roles tell us we are supposed to be quiet and tender-hearted.
The problem faced by Women in India
India is a country where a woman is given the status of a goddess. However, this also one of the ironic facts that India is a place where women are mostly sexually abused and face domestic violence issues. On hand, they worship them as goddesses, and on the other hand, they exploit and abuse women endlessly.
In the early period, severe problems like the Sati System are where a woman is forced to die if her husband dies. She is forced to be burned along with her husband's dead body.
After that, the violence against women in India became massive. It happens almost every day, 90% of houses in India. The reason for such a violation is dowry harassment. The agony is no one does anything to stop this. People turn a blind eye to it as if it is very casual for a woman to beat his wife.
After the violence, the gender-based discrimination in India is just on another level.
In India, women are not considered equal to men; they have always been considered inferior to men, regardless of the workplace or home.
The main problem is the education system of India where in many parts of our country women are not allowed to study.
To overcome these differences, we need women empowerment.
Women's empowerment indeed has great advantages. This gives them equal status comparing to men. Empowerment helps women in getting rid of social violence against her. It helps her in fighting her rights.
How media has played great role in uplifting women empowerment.
Media is considered the most essential tool of society, especially in modern times, because it can reach out to people in large numbers. Media has a vital role in one's life as it educates people about the current issues happening in the world. Not only educates but it also has the power to influence people and this makes it a very powerful weapon.
The common people depend on media to know what's happening in the society. The reach of media has increased in the common people, especially th electronic media, such as television. It has helped women to empower themselves.
POP CULUTRE (POPULAR CULTURE)
Popular culture is also known as mass culture and pop culture.. Popular culture has its own way of influencing people’s attitude towards a particular topic.
Popular culture is what comes after the high culture. It is often seen as “low culture” or “inferior culture”. It involves all the essential, outstanding in a certain period. It is very important for an average person in his day to day life.
The highlight of this culture is what preferences an individual adopts in social environment. It plans to combine a large number of population with diverse range culture.
Cultural values influence in such a way that media created. The media always intend to make their programs and advertisement satisfactory for the public.
The rights and freedom we have today are the result of the fights that some great women has done for us.

I would like to end it by telling the actual difference between a man and woman is that a man is commanding but a woman is demanding. Men and women are only different in terms of moral values and upbringing if we raise them both without discriminating then women are equal to men.
