VOW Media’s co-founder and director Pooja is currently in Palermo, Sicily attending a ten day CEIPES workshop entitled Woman 2 Woman – A workshop for women’s personal development and empowerment. It is part of the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Program.
Five components will be discussed on women’s empowerment:
-women’s sense of self-worth;
-their right to have and to determine choices;
-their right to have access to opportunities and resources;
-their right to have the power to control their own lives, both within and outside the home;
-and their ability to influence the direction of social change to create a more just social and economic order, nationally and internationally.
