Women’s Empowerment

Women form the backbone of a family.  They typically play multiple roles: a mother, a wife and often a provider of income. Yet women suffer from severe gender inequality, especially in rural India. Women’s empowerment is a high priority for IDRF. Supporting a rich range of replicable women-focused programs, IDRF is empowering a new generation of women who support themselves financially, participate in local government, provide healthcare for their families, and stand up for equality at home and in their communities.
