Rather than demographic traits like age, age at marriage, economic aspects like income, economic status were likely to contribute to empowerment. Still qualification, work experience and attitude towards work kept women on high self esteem and were likely to be empowered. Surprisingly husband?s attributes did not have any effect on empowerment level of females. The policies should be more focused on economic intervention in order to empower women.
