Empowering Women

"The process of empowerment is individual and it also is collective. Because it is through partecipation in a group, it can cause women to organize, to adopt consciousness of and ability to act and promote changes to obtain full and constant development. Empowering women can be seen as a continuing process with several inherent interrelated and mutually reinforcing factors... Simply speaking, empowerment is a process that builds consciousness and ability, leads to even more equality, even greater influence on policy-making and decisions, and even greater trasformative action"

Feng Yuan, Chinese journalist and women's scholar.
