Unlike in the past, the modern society has realized the importance of women in promoting economic growth. More efforts have been put to ensure that women are at the forefront as far as economic, social, and political prosperity is concerned. Many benefits have come up from the women empowerment campaigns all over the world. Below are just some of them.
For one to understand the impact of women on economic growth, it is essential to compare the economies of countries that empower women to those that do not. Women are known to work very hard to ensure their businesses succeed. It is, for this reason, you will find many women's business magazines, which focus on their ideas and opportunities. More women entrepreneurs contribute to faster economic growth.
Two is always better than one: if in a family the parents are both earning, it means there is more income in that house. More cash ensures that parents can be able to afford better education for their children. Empowering women, therefore, reduces the poverty level in the society both short-term and long-term.
Social and political growth
Having more educated people in the society means there are more people capable of solving problems. Empowered people are not short of confidence, so they can stand up for their rights and provide ideas on how to develop a better society. As such, empowering women ensures that a nation has a better chance to grow in social and political aspects.
Research has pointed to the fact that in a society where women are empowered, there is more stability in the family life. In most domestic violence cases, the cause is most likely a financial struggle. Without money, people tend to suffer emotionally and therefore act in frustration. Empowered women are in a better position to provide for themselves and their families.
To empower women is to invest in the society that we live in. When we treat women as important elements of our society, the world becomes a better place for all of us.
