In every nation on earth, women are the primary caregivers for children and the elderly. International studies show that women take the lead in assisting the family in adjusting to new realities and challenges when a society’s economy and political structure change. They are probably the main ones to ask for outside help, and they have a big say in whether or not changes in family life are made possible (or not). It is also undeniable that women contributed to a society’s move from illiteracy to literacy. A nation’s capacity to create and meet sustainability goals depends on its level of basic education. According to research, education can raise living standards broadly, increase the status of women and girls, increase agricultural productivity, slow down population growth, and protect the environment. The mother in the family is the one who most frequently encourages kids of both sexes to go to school and stay there. The capacity of the family and community over the long term is improved by a chain of improvements, with women playing a leading role. Currently, women make up 45.4% of the global workforce on average. A community can become a participant in the national economy by utilizing the formal and informal labor of women, which can change it from a relatively autonomous society. Despite significant challenges, women-owned small businesses in rural developing communities can not only provide for the needs of an entire extended family but also serve as a networked economic base for coming generations. In recent decades, women’s employment opportunities in both urban and rural settings have increased dramatically. The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day, “Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change,” was chosen to highlight new strategies for advancing women’s empowerment and gender equality while also advancing the 2030 Agenda and creating momentum for the successful implementation of the new Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. Of course, opportunities for women still lag behind those for men globally. But there is no denying that women still play an important role today.
