The worth of a civilization can be gauged from the place that it gives to women. Women today have distinguished themselves in various spheres of life as orators, doctors, diplomats and so on. There is no denying the fact that women all across the globe have made tremendous progress in this constantly developing economy.

While many have taken on the world with confidence there are still an awful lot of women trapped in the shackles of domestic violence and gender inequality. Violence against women need not refer to only physical violence. It is much broader and includes sexual, emotional, psychological and financial abuse.

The obstacle between violence and empowerment is often a lack of education. Education has the potential to help women seek employment opportunities and make them financially independent. It is this independence that empowers women to not only seek growth themselves but also acts as a catalyst to empower others around them.

It’s imperative that we facilitate a sustainable environment for women; one that is empowering and opens up multiples avenues for them to thrive.

“There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women.” – Kofi Annan, Former Secretary-General of the United Nations

OPPORTUNITY:

Empowerment can be viewed as a means of creating a social ecosystem in which one can take decisions and make choices either individually or collectively to promote social transformation.

Despite e orts to get women to be a part of organizations such as these, there still seem to be a considerable amount of women who due to the remote location of these centres and other factors like cultural beliefs, economic condition and social structure.

The community pavilion would serve as a medium to raise awareness surrounding the issues faced by women in today’s society. This platform would be used to empower women by building on their capabilities and strengths and encouraging their belief in their own ability to make a positive change.

It’s time we build a space for change!
