Political empowerment for women is regarded as a key driver for economic and social empowerment. SHG played a vital role for political empowerment in odisha. It will help them to promote and enhance their leadership qualities and confidence so that they can perform in a better way. But due to lack of awareness, illiteracy and social dogma still political empowerment of women in odisha is not up to the level of satisfaction. The Government should provide financial support and infrastructure to successful women organizations to take up the responsibility encouraging the women elected representatives. This could be taken up by the leaders of womenís movement in the state.
