Synthetic chemical pesticides/insecticides have adverse effects and significantly persistent in nature and are a serious cause to the human and animal life as well as to the environment. So, the need of the present day situation is to use natural pesticides as a safety measure. In this analysis, we are assessing some information based on natural pesticides like, pyrethrum, rotenone, nicotine, and other out-of-date natural pesticides, as well as the newer botanicals, like essential oils and the empowerment of women through the production of the natural pesticide like, Trichodermaviride etc. Their effectiveness, uses, safety, commercialization, and future developments of pesticides are discussed. Natural pesticides are necessary substitutes to the synthetic toxic chemicals for pest management. They are best suited for use in organic food production in industrialized countries but can also play a much greater role in developing countries as a new class of eco friendly products for controlling pests. The concept of empowerment has been much talked about in the context of organization. Various authors have defined 'empowerment', in different ways. To some, it means 'giving people, the power to make decisions', to others, it means 'getting people involved in a participative way'. So it can be defined as the motivational concept of self-efficacy. The major workforce in the society is women in the participation point of way in life of society in the modern time. They are highly skilled for the formation of groups and organization for the participation worldwide and becoming increasingly active in their communities, governments and the international arena.
