It helps the person minimize inequality and plays a central role in human development that influences the overall growth of the social economy. The empowerment of women is the key mechanism for achieving gender equality, which is apprehended as meaning that individual' obligations, freedoms and opportunities do not depend on whether they are born female or male. All relevant and accessible documents discussed in relation to the role of women empowerment in education have been listed and record analysis has been conducted. Books, papers and articles on policy and tactics were the key sources used in the search for the text. Education is one of the most effective ways of encouraging women to engage fully in the growth process with the awareness, skills and self-confidence available. Training also allows women to manage their lives, have greater bargaining power and be happier mothers with stronger spousal relationships. Education helps the exercise of women's rights and responsibilities as members of their society. It gives them the chance to make more meaningful decisions in terms of political engagement and making choices about life.
