In a society that has been striving for
egalitarian status, empowerment of women should be among the top priorities.
Considering the Mager number of women, 40% of the entire women population in
the country below poverty line, desperate measures had to be on the cards. In
the year 1987, when the Govt. of Karnataka established the Karnataka State
Women's Development Corporation, otherwise known as KSWDC, a huge step was
taken in this direction. As per Memorandum of Association of KSWDC, there is a
set of specified objectives according to which the company functions for the
welfare of the women in need.
