// 006 EMPOWERING WOMEN

Engaging women equally with men in all aspects of life is imperative for economically competitive and prosperous societies. — the Global Gender Gap 2009 Report

According to the 2010 World Bank report Women, Business and Law, out of 128 economies worldwide, only 20 have equal rights for women and men.

As a result, a huge economic gender gap exists. Women comprise more than 50 percent of the world's population, but they own only one percent of the world's wealth.

Your mission this week: Help empower women. Raise your voice in support of equal rights and economic opportunity.

Equality between men and women exists when both sexes are able to share equally in the distribution of power and influence; have equal opportunities for financial independence through work or through setting up businesses; enjoy equal access to education and the opportunity to develop personal ambitions.*

Listen to the Right People

It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem? What has already been tried? Who…See More
