Women should be economically empowered

Nishta Jooty
Posted July 9, 2018 from Mauritius

I believe in empowering women. By empowering a woman, we are empowering her family. Economically empowered women are more confident and have a say in the household matters; they can participate in the decisions concerning their children and their family. They will educate their children and hence contribute to the nation's development. Economically empowered women also have less risk to be the victim of gender-based violence.

As a leader and a role model, I encourage women to be assertive, to be confident and to dare to be different. I dream of a Mauritius where there are equal opportunities for everyone, where women are empowered and are given the opportunities they deserve and where they have a say in all matters concerning the country

My current work on women empowerment is mostly about training women on soft skills. I will be posting more in the coming days.

Dear Nishta,
I so agree with you, and am glad to know about your work. For so many years we have been told that men only should have money. Who made up this rule?! We are changing this discriminatory barrier of women having our own money and with each of us who gains some independence and freedom from poverty and/or being controlled, we free women to live the lives we deserve and to become leaders in our communities. It is so good to know you are at work on this in Mauritania.
In sisterhood,
Tam

Nitsha kudos i love this piece on women empowerment. its inspirational and empowering on its own. You are really right. Economically empowered women have a say and can be assertive. Seriously i hope every woman can read this and make something out of it. Women must take their future into their hands because it is only the violent that can take it by force and that is what the issue of women have turn to. We must stand up, arise and take our rightful place. Some economically empowered women still undergo GBV because the husbands do not make sure to make their lives hell on earth.

I totally agree. A woman is empowerment and empowerment is a woman. One cannot go without the other.
