Abstract: Women education in India plays a very important role in the overall development of the country. It not only helps in the development of half of the human resources, but in improving the quality of life at home and outside. Educated and skilled women not only tend to promote education of their girl children, but also can provide better guidance to all their children. Moreover educated women can also help in the reduction of infant mortality rate and growth of the population. Skill development in women means to make women stronger and more confident, especially in controlling their life and claiming their rights." It means to give women power and help them face the challenges of being a woman in society. For centuries, women were treated as less-than-equal to men in many ways. Women were not allowed to vote, owned property, or work in many jobs. Now that we are out of those dark ages, women are more empowered to do whatever they want. This means that they have the ability to choose their own destiny, job, vote, and do anything a man can do.
