ABSTRACT: The term ‘Empowerment’ refers autonomy, determination and self-respect that enables the responsibilities to provide support to the society, people and to overcome their sense of powerlessness and lack of influence, and to recognize and use their resources. On the other hand, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) stresses the role of unified communications and the integration of telecommunications, computers as well as necessary enterprise software, middleware, storage, and audio-visual systems, which enable users to access, store, transmit, and manipulate information. One of the main curse of twenty first century is gender inequality and biasness. Women and girls are always kept to the backward rows. Most of the times they are deprived and often neglected. Though 50% of the population are female, so it is the vital challenge to make the empowerment of girls and bring them into the mainstream through proper education, involvement and activities for the global development. ICT is one of the best way to make the woman empowerment and accelerate the overall development of the women. This paper discusses the overall women empowerment in India and other neighbour countries. The objective of the paper is to overcome the barriers and threats of women empowerment through ICT in India and her neighbour countries.

KEYWORDS:Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Women Empowerment, Gender Inequality, Entrepreneurship, Development and Digitization, e-learning, Technology and Mobile Communication.
