Creating Sustainable Futures by Advocating Women’s Empowerment
By accelerating the progress of women’s empowerment, a better future awaits the world.
From climate change to a global pandemic, humanity is facing extremely challenging times. There is an imperative need for appropriate strategies to bring about a sustainable future. Key amongst these is the need for policies that champion women’s empowerment.
The lack of strong initiatives is having an adverse impact on women’s and girls’ health and rights. Inequalities and vulnerabilities continue to act as a stumbling block, holding them back from achieving their full potential. All stakeholders need to step up, promote, and empower this group to ensure a better future for all.
Universal Access Via Meaningful Participation
Women’s empowerment was the highlight of the recent International Women’s Day, focusing on achieving universal access to rights. The United Nations Population Fund reiterates that this requires full participation from all stakeholders, especially governments. Formerly known as the UN Fund for Population Activities, UNFPA is seeking to promote gender equality in all areas.
Statistics for 2021 indicate that employment rates for Indonesian women stand at 55.5% versus 83.2% for men. Reasons for this range from legal limitations to cultural constraints. A more viable future will only be achievable by accelerating progress towards all-inclusive policies and societies. As such, the UNFPA is focusing on transformational change where women leaders work towards a sustainable tomorrow.
Aside from inequalities and vulnerabilities, women’s economic empowerment also takes centre stage. Some organisations, such as UN Women Indonesia, are also working hard to bring about positive change. These agencies focus on women’s rights in the public and private sectors as well as the media. The goal is to create and sustain an environment that will enhance women’s contribution to the Indonesian economy.
Women Entrepreneurs in the 21st Century
A better economy and sustainable business performances are strong reasons to prioritise women’s empowerment. A great way to do this is to close the wage and gender gaps and encourage women entrepreneurs. By increasing women’s and girls’ participation in the economy and workplace, Indonesia stands to benefit tremendously. This can positively impact Indonesia’s gross domestic product (GDP), boosting it with a 3% rise by 2025.
