:- Social change refers to the implementation of ideas which have the potential to bring in a positive change in the society, mostly to the people who are marginalized by the way system works and affects them. A continuous and gradual process, social change has the power to redefine the holistic setting of a society by altering its economic, social, cultural, political, and other aspects. Gender happens to be an integral part of the society we live in, as male and female population is at par with one another, hence gender equality as a concept is a crucial aspect for Social Change to come about. Despite the gender parity in terms of population, one can’t help but notice the existing inequality and bias that women in society have to face across all walks of life on a daily basis. The discrimination that women face within their families, at social events or even their workplaces speak volumes of the need for social change that needs to come about. 67% women agreed to the gender bias experience in their routine life. To gain better insights of the same, author conducted a study at women empowerment centers in Rural and Urban areas around Jodhpur. The women were interviewed, and presented a questionnaire, asking them about the change they might have experienced in gender equality in the last few years as they worked with these organizations. The study includes the experiences of women at the domestic, professional, and societal fronts. 76% respondents voted right to education and employment as a mean to reduce the gender discrimination. The expected results indicate a positive growth in gender equality when it comes to the lives of the women who are working at these empowerment centers. This research aims at establishing the fact that women should be conditioned to be financially independent through receiving education about their rights, in order to bring in a much needed equality amongst both genders in a society.
