Abstract: Digitization has revolutionized the world in many ways. One of the most important areas which has been also impacted is the society which has seen many role changes within the family. Because of traditions, family members having set roles as of now find themselves with different roles because of impact of the IT revolution. Women have always had a special role in the society. Unfortunately, in most of the societies their role has been constrained to homes and within the four walls. Because of other taboos their movement also was not allowed outside the house and social or other interaction with non-family members was very restricted. This was common across different households of all sections of the society. However, the educated class in urban areas were slightly better off. Also, the women employed in professional work like doctors had an edge regarding their movement and role in home and society because of the very nature of their jobs. The societal constraints still was a barrier in the overall context. Empowerment to women has been the focus of successive governments that came to power in the country. Many women friendly laws were enacted. Real power came to women with coming of digitization. The objective of this paper is to study the impact of digitization on women doctors in Delhi NCR. The research methodology followed is framing questions on indicators of empowerment and seeking answers from women doctors in Delhi NCR followed by analysis. The questionnaire has been framed on four dimensions that describe the various different aspects of empowerment.
