Women’s education,workplace,equality,and women in peace keeping and security provide diverse perspectives that cretae a strong and stable future for all.
So,why the fuss about empowering girls and women?
Empowering women is essential to the health and social development of families,communities,and countries.
When women are living safe,fulfilled and productive lives,they can reach their full potential. Contributing their skills to the workforce and can raise happier and healthier children. They are also able to fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large. A key part of this empowerment is through education. Girls who are educated can pursue meaningful work and contribute to their countries economy later in life.They are also less likely to get married at a very young age when they have eight (8) years of education ahead of them meaning that they and their families are healthier.
A healthy,educated,empowered women and girls are agents of change. When women and girls are supported,they gain opportunities to speak up for their rights,and also to advocate for their communities. They are also able to rise in social standing and they can feed this into future generations.
And women’s organisations, women’s empowerment policies,and women charities can gain momentum and contribute to a stronger child.
