As International Women’s Day on March 8th draws close, the global spotlight has turned to a topic that resonates deeply with us all: women’s empowerment. Yet, amid the buzzwords of feminism, gender equality, and women’s rights, the true essence of empowerment is often not discussed. What does it mean to empower women?

In Western societies, the advancement of women is often linked to pivotal moments in the historical struggle for women’s rights. This movement is typically divided into three phases: the first, occurring in the 19th and early 20th centuries, centered on suffrage; the second, in the 1960s, emphasized the sexual revolution and women’s societal roles. The onset of third-wave feminism is commonly traced back to the 1990s. The promotion of women’s empowerment and rights has become integral to a significant global movement, which has made notable strides in recent times. Events such as International Women’s Empowerment Day are gaining increasing traction. However, despite considerable advancements, women and girls still encounter discrimination and violence across all regions of the globe.

Women’s empowerment embodies the fundamental principle of equality; advocating for the rights, dignity, and agency of women in all spheres of life. From rural villages to urban centers, women’s empowerment initiatives play a transformative role in breaking down barriers, challenging stereotypes, and fostering inclusive societies where every woman has the opportunity to thrive. It’s a win-win for society as a whole; as women are given more opportunities, they can support their families and give future generations the chance to thrive.
