Abstract :

 Women empowerment refers to making women independent. Since ancient times the image of women is portrayed as one who is dependent on father, husband and then son. Though many policies are being framed for the empowerment of women and many programmes are being undertaken to make the women aware about their capabilities and lead them towards development still in the slums, the condition of women is yet to be improved. Women in the slums are being treated as they are only made for kitchen and household chores. Even if they are working they are exploited at their work place. Slum women who are generally illiterate are engaged mostly as unskilled labour in the unorganised sector which results into less income and more physical labour. This paper is an attempt to highlight the status of women and their empowerment in the slums of Malad. Based on the findings some recommendations will be given for the empowerment of these women
