Empowering Women

Sisters are empowering women around the world. They are increasing the spiritual, political, social or economic strength of women and the communities they live in. By increasing women's confidence and their capabilities, women are able to sustain independence. Women are often on the outside of decision-making and power structures. Raising awareness about gender equality, providing education and job training, and encouraging and enabling participation of women in civil society breaks down the barriers that prevent women from full and equal participation in their communities.
