Chapter 1 The 3Ls of Empowerment


The 3 Ls of women's Empowerment is a thought-provoking speech delivered by Christine Lagarde, the first women Finance Minister of the G8 economy and the head of the International Monitory Fund(IMF). She explains the three key factors which constitute women's empowerment as learning, labor, and leadership. She also emphasizes the attitudinal changes that have to happen in the mind of the people.

Education is the fundamental means to bring any desired change in society; it enables women to acquire knowledge, skills, and techniques which will help them in their personal and social growth as well as foster their sensitivity towards problems in society. Education not only helps in the development of the personality of the child but also determines his future. It has been said if you educate a man you educate a person, but if you educate a woman you educate the entire village’. Education of the girl child would mean the emancipation of women and the social development of the nation. Lack of education is the root cause of women’s exploitation and negligence. Economical independence in a male-dominated society is necessary for the empowerment of women. Only literacy and education can help women to secure a decent job and economic stability which make her powerful enough to claim social right and equity.

Any change we desire to see in society should begin with ourselves. Women's empowerment is not possible without changing the attitude of society. Government policies and regulations alone cannot bring women empowerment. It should be begun from or the home itself. We have to provide a congenial situation to the women members of our family enough space to express their views and aspirations in matters related to the family. we should dare to change the existing practices of considering women as second-class citizens. The age-old customs of considering women as the underprivileged and subjugated citizens should be abandoned. We should avoid all the restrictions in the names of religion, culture, and other social barriers which prevent women from acquiring quality education and restrict them from coming into the limelight of society. If we dare to face the challenges and do our responsibilities the difference will deliver.
