One of India's most pressing challenges is gender equality. Women have faced discrimination in the political process as well as in the social and economic spheres. Politically, women are side-lined. Since India's independence, women's engagement in the democratic process has consistently been minimal. The participation of women in the political process of the nation began to increase after numerous initiatives, including the constitutional amendment for women's reservation. Globalization, however, also brought about a number of other alterations and advancements, such as a strengthening of democratisation globally, which supports Indian women's political empowerment even more. In India's national politics, which have undergone significant reforms in favour of gender equality, women have been steadily increasing. This paper focuses on the Empowerment of Women and the Indian State, Women empowerment though legislative intervention at local-self-governance, Political empowerment of women: Opportunities and Challenges.
