Empowering Women

I believe that we are not in war against society but a battle with ourselves. It is how we act that reflects us as a person and in return is perceived by others. If we show respect to ourselves, then people will respect you back. If you act with dignity, then people will look up to you. If you act with confidence, then people will see you as a stong woman. We are our person.
As the saying goes 'A great hero comes with great allies' (well okay i tweaked it a little bit hehe), even if we start our change within ourselves, we need others to help us.
With that being said, Coca-Cola started its 5by20 campaign where they envision 5 million women to become microentrepreneurs to allow them to provide for the needs and dreams of their family.
The program will provide trainings and resources for women. Help me spread the word by reading more about this campaign here. Dont worry no sign ups to be done.

By 2020, we will not only see empowered women and their families but a stronger economy too. Well, at least that's what we hope.
