Ensuring Quality in Open and Distance Education for Women Empowerment in Bangladesh
The issue of women empowerment attracts global attention, which is especially true since after the 4th UN World Conference on Women held in Beijing in 1995. Access to quality education has been at the root of women empowerment. But the increasing cost of education coupled with widespread poverty has narrowed down the opportunity for their access to education. Again achieving quality in education has increasingly become crucial in strategic improvement plans of developing countries, which is also viewed as an influential factor in implementing plans for empowering them. This paper explores the role of ODL as a tool for women empowerment in Bangladesh. It shows ODL as a tool for promoting gender equality and empowering the women, a strategy for achieving the goal numbers two of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The paper will also focus on improving the competitiveness through enhancing organizational capacity by adopting the appropriate tools for its survival and growth. // Paper ID: 66
