How a woman from the US became the first person to become an empathetic feminist
The US government is looking to recruit hundreds of thousands of new women into its new National Council on Women.
Empowered women have long been the subject of US social policy, but now, they are also becoming a powerful political force.
But this week, Empowered Women’s Campaigns (EWC) and National Coalition for Empowered People, the new political action group, announced they would be using their position at the US State Department to help recruit women into the National Council of Women.EWC and National Council for Emowered People, also known as the National Women’s Caucus, have a mandate to provide women with the opportunity to lead in the US and advocate for their rights and interests, according to the US Department of State.
“We want women to be empowered, not hindered by government to advance their lives and their careers,” said the Empowered Woman’s Campaign’s Executive Director, Andrea Smith, in a statement.
“Women should be able to make their own choices, be empowered to build careers, and have the same access to the things that matter most to them, including healthcare and education.”
It’s a bold move for the Emowered Women’s campaign, and Smith said it was a direct challenge to the “war on women”.
“The war on women has been going on for too long, and it’s time for our movement to make a change,” she said.
“It’s time to change the discourse around women’s empowerment, and to give our daughters the opportunity they deserve.”
Empowered Women Campaigns spokesperson, Lauren Bresch, said the group had “the opportunity to be a voice for empowered women around the world” in the upcoming election.
“With more than 30 million women now working in the workforce, we believe the best way to create a stronger economy is to build the strongest workforce,” she added.
“To be part of the Empowerments Council, we are creating a unique opportunity for women and men to engage in a discussion about the importance of women’s rights.”
Emowered Women Campaign is also taking on an unprecedented role as a political force, as a new political party, Empowering Women, will be set up as a US political organization, according the Empowers Project.
“Empowered Women will be a national political organization that seeks to expand the political power of women in the United States and across the globe,” it said in a press release.
“While our goal is to achieve this goal by mobilizing women in communities across the country, we will also be engaged in local and national races.”
The Empowered Womens Campaigns is a new grassroots movement, established in April this year, aiming to “engage women and girls through political action, and empower them to make meaningful changes for their futures”.
The Empowers Campaign is the brainchild of Empowered Youth, a young woman from Florida who is running as an independent candidate in the 2016 election.
Empowered Young Women, a women’s advocacy organisation, has previously campaigned for the election of women to the UN, and has worked with organisations like the International Women’s Day Movement to address gender inequality.
“There’s a lot of energy around Empowered women, and we are excited to see what other women can do to help build a more inclusive future for the next generation,” said Empowered Council for the United Nations, a UN Women-led organization.
“Our vision is to empower and empower women across the world, and create an environment in which women have the opportunity and ability to make significant contributions to our communities.”
A US Government official confirmed the new Empowered womens campaign, but said it had not yet been formally approved for funding.
“The US Government is committed to ensuring that every American woman has the opportunity, and the tools, to advance her career and career advancement, including through Empowered Work,” the official said in an email.
“This will include providing funding to groups to support women’s economic empowerment, education, and career development.”
A new Empower Mentor program is also being developed to help empower women, in the hopes that it will be able fill a gap in funding.
The Empower mentor program, which is being developed by the US Government’s National Institute of Labor Education and Research, will enable women to become mentors in their careers.
“Today, a large number of women are not finding the time to pursue their passions in the workplace,” said Jennifer Jost, a senior advisor for the National Institute for Labor Education, in an interview with the US news outlet ABC.
“And that’s a real problem, because we’re also seeing more women entering the workforce who are just starting out, and need help.”
The National Institute on Women and the Workforce has previously announced a $2.2 million grant to help support the development of an Empowered Mentor Program, which would help young women in their first job, and in their later careers, find a mentor in their field.
