Women's empowerment has been a major topic in recent years. Women's empowerment promotes long-term rural development by improving women's economic, social, and political position in India. To transform an idle culture into a self-sustaining society, women must be empowered in these areas. Women's empowerment can be achieved by providing enough educational opportunities, political backing, and a competent legal system, as well as creating jobs for women. Here, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and self-help groups (SHGs) play a critical role in women's empowerment by providing basic education, vocational training, self-employment training, legal aid, women's protection, and self-awareness programmes. As a result, they are primarily concerned with the advancement of women in society. This article examines the fluidity of the process in Gujarat by which women's empowerment and status are improved through the use of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and self-help groups. This study discusses rural women's empowerment through NGOs, as well as the benefits of entrepreneurship for rural women. This research aims to investigate various policy options for positioning rural women as equal partners in entrepreneurship and economic growth.
