Solution

Empowerment is a process by which any category of oppressed persons gain control over their own lives by developing self-esteem and courage to fight against injustice. Sustainable development refers to development using resources in a way that allows for them to renew or to continue to exist for other e.g., recycling materials. This seems almost impossible without gender equality and women's empowerment. Women are empowered when they are able to access opportunities without restrictions such as in education, career, etc., Women's economic empowerment refers to the ability of women to enjoy their right to control and benefit from resources, income, etc as well as the ability to improve their economic status and well-being. Political empowerment includes affirmative action policies to increase participation of women in parliamentary/government positions and policymaking. Thus, women's empowerment is a key factor for sustainable economic growth, social development, and environmental sustainability.
