What is women empowerment ?

Women empowerment refers to enabling women to make them capable of deciding for themselves. Women have suffered a lot through the years at being deprived of their rights and responsibilities. In earlier centuries, they were treated as almost non-existent.

Gender equality is, first and foremost, a human right. A woman is entitled to live in dignity and freedom from fear. Empowering women is also an indispensable tool for advancing development and reducing poverty.

Empowered women contribute to the health and productivity of whole families and communities and to improve prospects for the next generation.

People are empowered when they are able to access the opportunities available to them without limitations and restrictions such as in education, profession and lifestyle. Feeling entitled to make your own decisions creates a sense of empowerment. Empowerment includes the action of raising the status of women through education, raising awareness, literacy, and training.

Women empowerment is all about equipping and allowing women to make life-determining decisions through the different problems in society.


There have been several organisations and institutions advocating for women, promoting legal and policy reforms and gender-sensitive data collection, and supporting projects that improve women’s health and expand their choices in life of which ImeyReach seems to be a part of.

ImeyReach Foundation is happy to be advocating for gender equality and promoting women empowerment through our GIRLS BE FREE project to sensitize both the girl and boy child for a gender balanced society and future.
