Author(s) Debadrita Basu

Abstract Rabindranath Tagore, a phenomenon, a name , a moulder of the thoughts of an entire nation, was an ambassador of the principles of human rights, specially in the field of women empowerment. long before many international and national instruments had been thought of Tagore in most of his creations, in his poetry, novels, plays, short stories had propagated the conception of women empowerment. Not only had he projected the wretched conditions of the women facing the worst forms of obstacles and hindrances but he also had conceived of the emancipation of women in all fields of life and has pleaded to get the women of his country.
ntry educated and receive an opportunity to get themselves employed.Tagore in many of his creations has highlighted the issues of child marriage, child labour, dowry system, domestic violence, the lack of education and opportunities of employment, the horrible condition of the widows and in his later works he has portrayed some of the most bold, independent, intellectual females in many of his short stories, plays novels and dance dramas.

The paper is a humble attempt in presenting Tagore's phenomenal reference to the principles of human rights specially in the field of women empowerment. It presents how Tagore through his plays, novels, short stories, paintings,his composition of music and even dance dramas and travelogue portrays various shades of the female gender and appeals to the highest ideologies of feminism. His efforts are so relevant that even in this generation of mechanical development and globalisation the impact of Rabindranath Tagore can never be forgotten.
