We premise that a large section of women in the third world face economic and social hardships due to a number of reasons. In the context of South Asian countries this is additionally due to prevailing patriarchal systems that seem to shackle women and account for their lack of development in areas education, health, employment, politics and administration. The status and conditions of women in India is similar to that of its counterparts in other third world countries. In fact, the socialization process in India has rendered women faceless and invisible. To address the problems of women and to empower them, several efforts are made by the womens movements, NGOs and the government of India and the state government of Karnataka. In this paper the authors discusses the various efforts made by the womens movement, NGOs and governments for empowerment of women and discusses about self help groups which are considered as an important tool for empowerment of women
