Tips For Female Empowerment

As a woman in today's society it is easy to be set back by the world around you; whether it's career development, education, gender roles, relationships, etc. However, times are changing. Minorities are rising. Women are more powerful than ever. Here are some statistics from the US Department of Labor to consider:

  • Women now make up 47% of the US workforce.
  • Women are now more likely to achieve a bachelors degree than men by age 29.
  • More than 40% of women in the labor force had college degrees in 2016, compared to 11% in 1970.
  • Women's participation in the US labor force has climbed since WWII from 32% to 56.8% in 2016.
  • 70% of mothers with children under 18 participate in the labor force, with over 75% employed full time.
  • Mothers are the primary or sole earners for 40% of households with children under 18 today, compared to 11% in 1960.

How Did Women Do It?

Women became less tolerant of others views. They started to empower and stand by each other. They started to become educated. They started to voice their opinions and rights. While there are still plenty of issues in today's society and especially around the world, women can breathe and accomplish any goal thrown their way.

"Girls compete with one another, women empower one another."

 

What Do Women Do Next?

First and foremost, we must empower our neighbors, especially our youth. Support female groups, attend support groups for women's empowerment, support important causes that provide for equal opportunity and accessibility to all genders and cultures, support female entrepreneurs, and most importantly empower yourself.

Ways To Empower Yourself

Women's Therapy
  1. Continue to learn about yourself.

    Pick up new hobbies and interests, reflect on your past experiences to see what you need in life, understand your strengths and weaknesses, accumulate measurable goals and chase them.

  2. Never stop learning.

    There's nothing more powerful than an educated woman. Become an expert in things that interest you, attend seminars, network with other women or businesses to build yourself professionally.

  3. Independence.

    This is something you should celebrate whether you're single or in a relationship. Co-dependency can be tricky, but when you're liberated from it, you can truly thrive off who you can become. Focus on yourself and betterment.

  4. Give back to your community.

    Whether you participate in community service, donate to charities or movements, this can provide a positive effect on your environment and your own mentality, outlook, and purpose.

  5. Acceptance.

    Accept your personal beauty. Accept your standards. Accept your flaws. Accept yourself.

  6. Self-Care.

    Taking care of yourself is so important and can truly influence your overall perspective of who you truly are. Eat healthy, exercise routinely, take self-defense classes, try something new, set aside days of rest, treat yourself occasionally. The better you feel, the more empowered you can be.

  7. Look at who you surround yourself with.

    Do these people treat you as an equal? Do you benefit from this relationship? Do these people empower you to be better? Reflect on these questions about who you surround yourself with and decide whether or not the friendship or relationship is holding you back. If it is, let go.

These are just some strategies to enhance your self concept, worth, and individuality. Be proud to be you, be proud to be a woman, and don't let anything stand in the way of your dreams; for they are attainable with the right amount of confidence and drive.
