As I wrote when sharing my work with ShePower to empower and uplift girls and women in India, “in some parts of the world, [there] remains a harsh reality. Social ignominy surrounds the birth of daughters rather than sons.”
With my words, I initiated a conversation on global women’s empowerment and what we can do to effect change.
Empowering women with education, supporting their health, happiness, equal opportunity, and rights will go a long way towards empowering communities.
Through ShePower, a global organization I founded in partnership with We Movement, I offered self defense training, health education and empowerment workshops to hundreds of women in India, from Delhi, Munipur, Mumbai, and Coimbatore to other parts of Tamil Nadu.
The goal was to empower them, help them find employment opportunities and recognize their worth as women. Change is starting with me, but it can end with us.
