One who can empower a woman is the empowered women itself. The world is striving to bloom feminism and to empower such women who are great examples of being a feminist. Women play a great role in society. They are really the backbone of the generation and are strong pillars standing in continuous storms and rains.
Women have to fight the war with themselves and also with society. They have to fight the war to sustain their position, maintain their standards, and even raise their voice in the society against the injustice caused to them.
Therefore, it is vital that we empower such women who can change society's norms and make it a better place for everyone.
Why is women's empowerment necessary?
Women empowerment refers to encouraging the development of women in society in all sectors and giving them the position they deserve in society. Since generation, the society was a male-dominant society, and everything worked according to their terms.
Women were not given their fundamental rights and were deprived of every facility in society. The growth of women was restricted in all the fields, and they were bombarded with restrictions.
To eliminate this discrimination, women need to be motivated to come forward and fight for their rights. No gender is superior, and hence there should be the eradication of inequality among the genders.
Women empowerment rightly focuses on this and develops the idea of feminism. Hence providing opportunities to women, giving them a chance to come forward, and helping them to grow themselves are all part of women's empowerment. For ages, these practices of discrimination were going on and it is now necessary that we take steps to uproot them.
I will be sharing with you a few tips on how you can empower a woman and even empower yourselves. To all the women out there, it is also necessary that you empower yourselves along with all the other women.
Follow my guide and see you getting empowered and boosting your self-confidence.
1. Understand there is a different kind of success story :
Everyone's success story and goal may not be the same. Your idea of setting your life in New York alone and living independently may not be the same as a woman who wants just to graduate, get married, and have children.
There is no one single beautiful idea of success. If you decide your success path, that is beautiful and really a thing to be praised for.
Understand that every story and every goal can be different. Respect it and try to grow the thought.
2. Educate women around you:
Knowledge grows by sharing it around with other people. There are many women who are deprived of learning. They are not allowed to attend schools, colleges, or any formal education institute. And there are many women out there who have an urge to learn and graduates themselves.
Try to be a blessing for these women. Teach them what you know. Be their motivation to keep going ahead with life and never to stop learning. Give them knowledge about new skills.
3. Boost their self-esteem:
It is necessary to boost confidence among women so that they keep pushing forward on the path of happiness and success.
If you are confident about yourself winning the race, then there are much more possibilities that you will do it.
If you build in them a sense of self-esteem, they would feel empowered and strong to tackle their own problems.
4. Invest in their life :
Take opportunities to be part of their success. Participate in their business. Buy from small businesses led by women. Give them opportunities to work with you if possible.
Donate money to the welfare of women's development. Teach and preach women who can be a better example for society. If you are financially fit, help women to start up with their business.
Help them take courses that are valuable. Even sometimes, there are women who need basic requirements. Try to provide them with it and help them out to sustain their living.
5. Teach them to love yourselves:
Many women think that they are not perfect. They lack many things and the ability to do something in life. They judge themselves by other people's opinions. They are insecure about their body and color.
They think they have many flaws, and they make huge mistakes. You should be an example for these kinds of women. Be their inspiration of the day. Make them believe that they are beautiful and they can conquer everything they want in this world.
There is no power or force which can stop them from living and enjoying the life they deserve. Remind them that they are worthy. They deserve all kinds of happiness, success, humor, and success in life. They do not need to adjust themselves and alter them while putting actions.
6. Surround themselves with positive vibes :
Don't speak anything negative or demotivating in front of these women. If you are trying to preach something to them, they are looking at you as an example of an empowered woman.
Be their motivator and their inspiration for the day. Stop gossiping about others, which won't help you at all in your life. It is also putting the other women before you down by setting barriers which they can take in the wrong way.
They will think people will judge them if they do it. Let them be free and give them freedom from all kinds of negativity. There are a lot of gossips about women going into a society already, don't add to it.
7. Make them independent:
It is necessary for a woman to be independent to make her position in society. A woman who is financially and emotionally independent in their life can lead her life on her own terms.
Therefore you should motivate them to stand on their own feet. To raise their voice for them and defend their position in society.
Remind them of the actual purpose of feminism and to grow it within them. To keep pushing forward with their dreams and fight for what you deserve.
Truly to empower women, you need to empower yourselves. If you are a woman out there, inculcate this practice first to yourselves and then to others. See to it you create a better world for yourselves along with others.
Find yourselves to be independent, focused, and a lovely human being to you. A successful woman will always learn to spread this word and help others to improve in their life.
Yes, a journey of a woman can be difficult, but we can manage this, you know that! There is nothing that will ever pull us back from us. Tell yourselves that you are not giving up on this for you and for all the other women in society.
And to all the men out there reading this article, feminism can be achieved by you too. The idea of feminism was never limited to women alone. Even you can try to create a better society to live in—a society which respects all the gender irrespective of all the boundaries caused.
Empowering a woman was never a duty of a woman alone; you have to stand with them in this race. Stop limiting yourselves and also to the idea of feminism. You can be the motivation to all the women. There is and never will be a barrier to inspiring people in your society.
