[Article] The Need for Women Empowerment – By Kwaghngise Tersur Victor

Women were not allowed to make decisions for themselves, women empowerment came like a breath of a fresh air. This made women aware of their human rights and how they can make their own decisions.

Women empowerment can be seen as promoting women’s sense of self-worth, the ability to determine their own choice, and their right to influence social change for themselves and others.

In some of the countries, they have made progress and are still making progress in empering women, while in other countries, women empowerment is needed more than ever. The education and freedom scenerio is very regressive here more like other countries, but in other countries like Nigeria have to make more progress in empowering women around the nation.


In empowering women, Individuals and Government must collaborate to make it happen. Education must be made compusary so that women can make decisions and influence social changes for themselves.

Women must be given equal opportunities in every field, irrespective of gender. They must be given equal pay.

We can also empower women by abolishing child marriage. Various programmes can be held where they can be taught skills to fend for themselves in case they face any financial challenge.

Lastly, the shame of divorce and abuse must be thrown out of the windo; many women stay in abusive relationships because of the fear of society. Parents must also teach their daughters that it’s okay to come home divorced rather than in a coffin (casket).

Women should therefore be empowered in every part of the world so that they will have the ability to determine their choices or make social changes.
