WomanToWatch “Empowerment if defined by Merriam is to give power or authority to by legal or of- ficial means. It is the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights but how can you control and claim what you don't know you possess? Empowerment, therefore is the process of developing people to believe, see, and walk in what you stirred and pulled out. It (empowerment) is the development of personal power or strength, the ability to take action, or improved interaction skills socially, physically, and mentally.” Khalilah Olokunola 13
