Today, it is almost indisputable that EMPOWERMENT of girls and women is required for sustainable development. Whether poverty, violence and terrorism, or population explosion, as stated by Kofi Annan, 7th Secretary General of the United Nations, “There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women.”

And yet, what do we really know about empowerment of women, particularly at the global level?

One global monitor is the Millennium Development Goals. Specifically, Goal 3 is to promote gender equality and empower women. However, when examined in details, its one target is to eliminate gender disparity in education, and its four indicators are:

1. Ratio of girls to boys in primary, secondary and tertiary education;
2. Ratio of literate women to men, 15-24 years old;
3. Share of women in wage employment in the non-agricultural sector; and
4. Proportion of seats held by women in national parliament

Another is the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report. Here it specifically states that it ranks countries according to gender equality, NOT women’s empowerment.

Therefore, what may be THE GAP in gender gap is empowerment. And to begin our understanding and knowledge, 4GIRLS GLOCAL LEADERSHIP (4GGL) created and launched the first-ever global survey to hear voices, values, and vision of today’s young women around the world.

Our goal for this Conference is to share our initial findings, as well as begin a critical conversation about empowerment – the most powerful tool for change.
