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

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
