What does women empowerment mean to you?

Women empowerment is the theme of the decade. Whether it’s African American women expressing their rights by wearing their natural hair or Arab American women standing for their rights, society no longer invades the minds of women who desire to embrace or who are ascending from their cultural roots and standing up for their rights, including those who choose to be feminist. According to Washington Post, six in ten women and one-third of men call themselves a feminist or strong feminist, with roughly 7 in 10 of each saying the movement is empowering. Empowering Women have been impacting the feminist community with its strong purpose to prove equality for all, uplifting all women regardless of race and religion to take part in making a difference for not only society today, but for the next generation of girls.
