Women Empowerment

Being empowered is having control over one’s life and having an equal chance to engage in society. Women’s empowerment, also known as female empowerment, is the process through which women acquire power and equal opportunity to pursue their own social, economic, and personal goals, participating in all facets of society on an equal footing with men.

According to the statistics from FINCA;

  • 1 billion women around the world are unbanked, without access to a formal banking institution
  • 2 / 3 of the world’s illiterate population are women
  • 2.7 billion women worldwide are legally restricted from having the same choice of jobs as men
Tactics to Empower a Woman

Women’s empowerment is severely hampered by poverty. In general, people have less access to jobs, resources, political involvement, and other things the poorer they are. Young women and girls suffer the most from poverty all around the world. One of the most powerful ways to empower women is to assist them in escaping poverty.

A woman’s rights are also restricted in many low-income nations by discriminatory laws and related societal norms. She might not be able to start a business, acquire schooling, own property, or create a bank account. Women can be empowered by urging society to review these laws and customs.
