Role or sports in women empowerment
Author(s): Dr. Shantanu Mistri
Abstract:
This is the era of women's empowerment. Women are developing their selves in every aspect. As per National Family and Health Survey between 2019 to 2021, there are 1020 women for every 1000 men in India. So, women's empowerment can play a key role in the development of our nation. Sports have an important role in the empowerment of women. Participation in sports helps women to have an active lifestyle, be role models in society, build self-confidence, have the ability of decision making, accept challenges, have economic freedom etc. In the 2012 London Olympics out of 6 medals 2 were won by women athletes. In the 2016 Rio Olympics both the 2 medals were won by women athletes. In the 2020 Beijing Olympics out of 7 medals 3 were won by female players. BCCI announced the same remuneration for both male and female players. These are the positive signs of women's empowerment where sports are playing a vital role.
