an economic empowered woman is a woman with power over her own life.

The obstacles to women’s economic empowerment are complex and challenging, but they are not insurmountable.


women’s rights are human rights

Discrimination and inequality are the root causes of violence against women. In many parts of the world, women’s roles are often viewed as having less political, economic, social and cultural value than those of men. Inequality with men constrain educational opportunities for women, this keeps men in a position of power and violence is often used in order to reinforce this position.

“There must be no impunity for gender-based violence. Let me be clear. What we are talking about is not a side issue. It is not a special interest group of concern to only a few. What we are talking about are not only women’s rights but also the human rights of over one half of this globe’s population. Violence against women concerns not only women, but above all the rest of us.” — Sergio Vieira de Mello, April 2003
