“The empowered woman is powerful beyond measure and beautiful beyond description.” -Steve Maraboli
Stereotyping and sex discrimination is still a hot potato even in our modern society. The antediluvian ideas that women do not have a role in the society is a universal issue that has been fought and debated by a lot of people in different media platform. Despite the endless discourse, we can somehow feel that little by little our contributions have been recognized and we undoubtedly play an important role in all areas and aspect of our society. Gender equality may still have a long way to go, however, we cannot be deterred to prove that we can be someone who we want to be with all our talents, potential, knowledge and skills as an individual. We may not completely uproot the negative notion about women empowerment rather we can show the world how special and unique we are to have the same status quo as an essentially veritable contributor to achieving advancement goals in development and sustainability to improve the quality of life for women, men, families and communities. We should take courage to stand on our own and to fight for our rights as a human. There are a lot of women around the world to whom we can find inspiration from. Women who accomplished great things for their cause be it in economics, political, social etc. Women’s empowerment offers us a pathway to a new life so be yourself and be empowered today!
