Women are the inspiring change

“Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women.” – Maya Angelou

The road to gender equality remains long and ever-shifting; particularly when it comes to the way gender intersects with race, class, and sexuality. But today’s influential female voices give us hope that we are headed in the right direction.

This month, let us remind ourselves of who we are, and what our dreams and goals are. As women, we tend to lose ourselves in the midst of life itself by putting others’ needs first and forgetting that we all have dreams, and it is never too late to start working towards them.

Women empowerment can be defined as promoting women’s sense of self-worth, their ability to determine their own choices, and their right to influence social change and others.

“While we commemorate woman’s month, let us embrace womanhood by empowering ourselves and not being afraid to fix our CROWNS. Let us use the resources that have been made available to our disposal to ensure that we are continuing to raise the status of WOMEN through education, awareness, literacy, and training by ensuring that your viewpoints are accepted. When women are empowered, it enables leaders and team members to live their fullest potential and to own their work.” – says Simphiwe.

It is by this time that we can say that WOMEN are the greatest beings. In the process of empowering ourselves let us remember that self-love and self-care are important in a woman’s life. A reminder you are beautiful, and you are the Women that you say you are.
