How important our girls are to us?
Here are several easy ways to make a big difference in the lives of daughters, sisters, and mothers around the world — and right in our own neighborhoods.
- Building their communication skills
The voice of young women must be heard if they are ever going to contribute fully to the world. Girls must be taught to express themselves articulately to build their charisma so that they can claim a more active role in their society.
- Giving them decision-making roles
In most societies, women have little to no say on the issues affecting them, such as governance, allocation of resources, marriage, childbearing, etc. Right from the family level, women should be participants in the decision-making process.
- Providing leadership space
Of all the activities for women’s empowerment, providing a path to leadership is the most instrumental. It does not only instill confidence but also puts women at a level where they can be able to empower other women. In a male-dominated society, affirmative action is the only way of help women to achieve leadership roles.
If you educate girls, you give them the power to conquer the world. An educated girl or young woman knows her rights. An educated woman can perform a job with her acquired skills. She will be able to take care of herself without being reliant on anybody. Education is among the activities for women’s empowerment that lays a foundation for how far a lady can go with her life.
- Appreciate the women around you
Women empowerment should begin at the family level. Whether it is your wife or daughter, let them feel valued and equal to everyone else. Whether in the neighborhood or office, support women who need assistance and let them know that you care.
