Being economically empowered is true emancipation.
According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, “Economic empowerment is the capacity of women and men to participate in, contribute to and benefit from growth processes in ways that recognise the value of their contributions, respect their dignity and make it possible to negotiate a fairer distribution of the benefits of growth. Economic empowerment increases women’s access to economic resources and opportunities including jobs, financial services, property and other productive assets, skills development and market information”.
The global economy should serve every single individual.
When women are economically empowered, entire communities are better off for it. If we truly believe that God does not show favouritism (Acts 10:34), then we must spread love and justice to all people, and that includes economic justice.
