Female empowerment isn't about just celebrating women and shutting out men. It's about giving women the opportunities that men have had for generations. Women have made great strides over the past century, but there is still more work to be done.
What Is Female Empowerment?
Female empowerment is an important topic because it is about giving women the power to make their own decisions, take control of their lives and allow them to achieve their potential regardless if they chose motherhood as well as a carreer.
It is also about giving women the ability to be strong and confident, which can help them in their careers and relationships.
Female empowerment is about as much about women as it is improving the important balance that both genders play in creating a fair and equal society where people are recognised for their contribution and skills irrespective of their gender.
What Are the Benefits of Female Empowerment?
There are many benefits to female empowerment. Female empowerment can help women achieve their goals and achieve equality in their societies.
Female empowerment can also help reduce violence against women and promote gender equality.
Female empowerment can also help women access education and employment opportunities, enriching the lives of the communities they live in and the quality of family life.
With more women in decision making roles within businesses, schools and public services provide - a more inclusive and balanced view of the world can be acknowledged - and the quality of what is offered can be significantly improved.
How Can We Help Promote Female Empowerment?
There is no doubt that female empowerment is an important issue. In order to help promote female empowerment, we need to understand the different factors that contribute to it.
Some of these factors include access to education, economic opportunities, reproductive health care, and safety. All of these issues need to be addressed in order to help empower women and girls.
Recently, The Morphbag by GSK has entered into a collaboration with Smart Works Reading with whom we share values on multiple levels.
Smartworks is a charity focused on preparing women who need to reintegrate into work after a break by offering interview training as well as providing styling advice and outfits to instill them with all confidence they need to land a life changing job.
Both Smartworks and The Morphbag by GSK believe in the importance of clothing and accessories in helping us to feel confident and empowered so that we can embrace change and take action for a better future. With this shared mission, we felt naturally drawn to collaborate.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Smartworks and The Morphbag further share the value of the importance of solidarity.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While Smartworks creates a community of donors and recipients of pre-loved office wear, the Morphbag runs the Empowered Women Interview Series, thus introducing to its community inspirational personal stories of empowerment.⠀Further, as a lifestyle brand, The Morphbag shares lifestyle tips for personal growth and empowerment in its monthly newsletter as we believe in the importance female solidarity and support through exchange of advice.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Last but not least, this Charity’s important role in circular economy meets one further value of The Morphbbag, which is to encourage pre-loved items to stay in circulation.
When we launched our collaboration, we had the honour to have Sarah Burns MBE, Chair of Smartworks reading joining us to continue our Morph Series, we had launched back in March 2021 to celebrate IWD. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
Reintegration into work after a break whether due to motherhood or other, can be very challenging to women as any career break can cause our inner confidence levels to suffer.
Our collaboration with Smartworks allows us to reach with donations of our versatile handbags those women taking on this challange and style them with a handbag full of confidence to land that job which represents their very own Morph Moment into a new future filled with hope.
Female empowerment is essential for the progress of women and society as a whole. We must all continue to work together to promote and achieve female empowerment worldwide -
The Morphbag is proud to support and celebrate women.
