Women's empowerment is the process for women to redefine gender roles that allow them to acquire the ability to choose among known alternatives otherwise restricted by such ability. The empowerment of women and the achievement of gender equality are vital for our society to ensure the country's sustainable development. Many world leaders and scholars have argued that without gender equality and the empowerment of women, sustainable development is impossible. The present study examines the role of education in women empowerment.
