Abstract: The aim of the present study is to estimate the women empowerment index value in Bangladesh since, women’s empowerment is a matter of basic human rights which has during the last decade become a panacea for third world development. For this purpose, BDHS-2004 data have been used which reveals that empowerment level of women increases with age except the age group 45-49. Moreover, a mathematical model has been fitted to the mean score of women empowerment index which shows that women empowerment index follows a quadratic polynomial model.
