Gone are the days when we used to envision a shy, sensitive and introvert female while we think of Indian women. Ladies can be empowered by promoting their participation in all areas to improve their personal satisfaction and bring gender equality. Interestingly, ladies are positively shaping their mark in the world of sports.
A woman is a mother, daughter, sister and a wife in her life. We can say that she is a complete package of major responsibilities. When she enters into sports, she adapts so many things like time management, confidence, team spirit. So I’d state that she is the one individual who can construct others to imbibe these things in their life.
Sports have huge potential in terms of empowering women and the girls. It tends to be a power to amplify the woman’s voice and tear down gender barriers and discrimination. In addition, to generate physical and mental health benefits, sports can be a compelling platform to give women and girls a leadership platform. With the developing participation of women in sports globally and nationally, sports is being seen as a means of great empowerment for women in India. Their participation in sports empowers them to live a life of dignity.
I feel sports is a significant social and economic empowering tool. It encourages them in acquiring new professional network, build up a sense of identity. Additionally, sports act as a medium to improve women’s leadership roles and decision making ability and help to bring people across borders, cultures and belief systems.
Sports can be an accelerator to women actualizing her maximum capacity to create social networks, build mental and emotional health, educate about her rights, create strategic, technical skills as well as physical qualities. Sports empowers women to stay updated about their rights and raise voice against the wrong done in the society. It gives them a feeling of self-dependence. It gives those women who represent India at National and International levels, a feeling of pride. Sports empower women completely from inside out.
