Is Women’s Empowerment Really Necessary?


Empowerment refers to increasing the spiritual, political, social, or economic strength of individuals and communities. It often involves the empowered developing confidence in their own capacities. Wikipedia

Do you think women’s empowerment is even necessary? What are your thoughts about empowerment? We are so accustomed to running with new concepts, theories and such that we fail to fully understand the true essence. I believe this is what happens with the concept of women’s empowerment.

The process of empowerment The process which enables individuals/groups to fully access personal/collective power, authority and influence, and to employ that strength when engaging with other people, institutions or society. In other words, “Empowerment is not giving people power, people already have plenty of power, in the wealth of their knowledge and motivation, to do their jobs magnificently We define empowerment as letting this power out (Blanchard, K).” It encourages people to gain the skills and knowledge that will allow them to overcome obstacles in life or work environment and ultimately, help them develop within themselves or in the society.

If you are going to be equipped for the mission you’ve set forth for your business and life, empowerment is a needed ingredient in your recipe for the realization of a juicy manifestation of empowering success.

Show me a woman who is empowered and I’ll show you an unstoppable woman.

Empowerment is a choice. Empowerment doesn’t chase you down and beg to be part of your journey. You must choose to seek out resources that will allow you to maximize your empowerment.

You are a spirit, you have a soul and you live in a body. Each must be nurtured if they’re going to be and remain strong, even so for your personal, spiritual and business life. This has been said to be a male dominated world and as such women must become empowered to stand in their own power, to step up and play a bigger game. You must be confident in yourself and the gifts that you have to offer to the world. Let’s take it a step further for those of you who may be dealing with fear, when you are confident of God in you it “trumps” fear.

Is women’s empowerment necessary? Yes, if you’re going to have a competitive advantage and differentiate yourself in the marketplace. Whether you’re in the corporate world, a work at home mom, woman entrepreneur, stay at home mom, wife, leader in ministry, single mom, executive etc. make the choice for maximum empowerment today!

Here’s a biblical reference to empowerment . . . In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides]. Ephesians 6:10 Amplified version

Of course I could share volumes of information on this topic, however, I’ll save that for another post, book, song or coaching session. (smile)

    Robin, great post! Empowerment to me means to make choices that come from my own knowing and wisdom, choices that affirm and make manifest the gift and purpose that I am here to live, love and share. It is the intersection of my divine purpose, intuition, logic and emotion. Thank you for an insightful article.

  2. Very interesting question, Robin. I do believe that women’s empowerment is necessary. However, I also believe that the most important empowerment comes from within. Women must take the lead to empower themselves by cultivating their own gifts and talents, surrounding themselves with positive people, and remaining connected to God.

    Thanks so much for posing this though-provoking question. I can always count on you to stretch your reader beyond conventional thought into a whole new dimension!

    Robin, great post! :) I find that the empowerment that allows me to push past all of the resistance I feel in my business always comes from the Lord… It is true that without it I would not be able to accomplish anything at all! Great points made here Robin! thanks for everything!

  4. Thank you for sharing! Empowerment is important – I see it more as a tool for confidence.
