‘As women, we must stand up for ourselves, for each other, for justice, for all’- Michelle Obama.
When we think of empowered women, the first name that comes to mind is Michelle Obama. An important catalyst of the fight for women’s empowerment and equal rights; she is someone every woman should take inspiration from. Every woman’s definition of women empowerment is different; however, the goal is the same. According to the amazing women at Fuzia, women empowering women is uplifting each other and ourselves to be the best versions of ourselves that we could possibly be.
‘Women empowerment is the process in which women elaborate and recreate what it is that they can be, do and accomplish in a circumstance that they were previously denied.’ Women empowerment means letting women take part in the decision-making process who were previously cut off from it such as in political and economic decisions. Women’s empowerment programs allow women to gain power over their own lives and have a valid voice in the society. Women’s empowerment programs can include opportunities in education, business, their life choices, etc. as well as raising the confidence and status of women through education, literacy programs, and corporate training programs. Women empowerment’s main objective is equipping women with knowledge and expertise and allowing them to making their own decisions.
Some ways to empower women are:
1) Provide a judgement-free space- Most women, especially in developing countries, do not have the privilege of having their voice heard. Providing a judgement-free and safe space for them can help them gain knowledge about domestic violence, family planning, women’s rights, equality, etc.
2) Educate women- Education, particularly in this day and age, is the most necessary aspect of women’s empowerment. Women who are uneducated cannot adequately stand up for themselves or their rights. Thus, women’s education programs are a must in the struggle for empowerment.
3) Teach women about savings- Financial dependency is one of the main reasons why women who are in abusive surroundings cannot get out. Teaching them about saving their money can impact their lives in a very positive way.
4) Help them build networks- Building networks means having a strong support system, wherein they can help each other make positive changes in themselves and in the society as a whole.
As the title of this article states, Fuzia is one of the few social networking platforms that focuses entirely on creative empowerment for women. It is an online women networking community that encourages women and girls to express themselves through the power of creative expressions and collaborations. Basically, according to us, Fuzia is the prime example of a modern empowerment program for women creative entrepreneurs.
Fuzia World’s Vision, Mission, and Core Values.
As we mentioned previously, women empowerment is giving women the opportunity to gain control over their own lives and express themselves. Fuzia has created the ultimate talent pool and a global community of boss women. Not only does it give women a global support system, it also gives them the opportunity and platform to share, showcase, and express in any form be it through art, photography, writing, etc.
Fuzia women empower other women through the intense power of their creative voices. Here at Fuzia, a women’s web, our main objective is to drive creativity, inspiration, empathy, encouragement, learning, and mutual admiration and support through social media contests, motivating blogs, creative writing blogs, and talent showcases.
Fuzia’s Ultimate Goal
At Fuzia, our ultimate goal is to be a platform that empowers women all over the world through the power of a strong community that is filled with creativity, inspiration, appreciation, motivation, empathy and sisterhood. We hope to ultimately create an environment that encourages women to learn new things, grow confident and self-assured, and inspire each other. Fuzia is redefining the importance of social media and the internet in the new age to develop self-belief and encourage feminism and gender equality.
Barriers to Women’s Empowerment
Unfortunately, though the fight for equality is getting stronger day by day, there are still some barriers to overall women’s empowerment. Some of them include:
- Hesitation to express
- Lack of opportunities to pursue what you want to pursue
- Restrictions and external barriers like societal pressures, family restrictions, cultural and religious barriers, etc.
- Lack of support
- The absence of a safe-space
- Fear of being judged
At Fuzia, our goal is to demolish these barriers so that women feel good doing what they want to do and can express themselves in a safe and judgement-free zone. We hope to empower every girl and women to identify her talent within and instill confidence to showcase it on a global level. We also help them stay economically strong and financially independent by providing them with substantial online projects that match their skillsets. We take pride in the fact that we provide women and girls an environment where they have a strong support system, no restrictions, a space to express, and ample opportunities.
