    The study aims to analyze the global gender justice in 21 st century. In the era of globalization, many countries in the world are progressing in respect of ensuring gender justice, especially in education and employment. More young women are going to schools and more and more women are getting into paid labor market. However, maternal mortality rate is still very high all over the world. Women are still excluded from decision making at the policy level. Environmental movement is excluded from gender justice movement, though women suffer from environmental degradation because of socially constructed roles and responsibilities imposed exclusively on them. In the 21 st century, it is proven fact that lasting development of the world will never come unless women are empowered. Similarly gender equality is regarded as the key to fight world poverty, hunger and justice. The study is predominately based on secondary data which is supported by some empirical case stories of third world countries highlighted in various primary data based articles, books, online publications so on and so forth. The study ends up with some recommendations to speed up the progress of women's empowerment and gender justice of the entire world.
