One of the chief dimensions or angles is to study the role and position and power enjoyed by women through Ages in its true perspective. This study is hypothesized that since women in India are empowered they could  participates in all activities such as education, sports, politics, media, art and culture, service sectors, science, technology and the like. In the midst, our society is still largely male dominated and most women do not have real freedom in their spheres of life. At the same time this study signifies two things. One is that that a cultural struggle is needed to sweep away the feudal and medieval mentality from which such a situation stem. The other one is the commendable role and power possessed by women through ages and their contributions to the entire society in the changed scenario.  More over this article intends to give an awareness and insight into the problems faced by women over years and their role and position from different angles. After all empowerment of women will lead to a world where women and men ensure that resources are utilized not just equitably, but sanely and safely.
