Female Empowerment

This commentary, which was drafted for the beautiful photoshoot of IG @nes.xs, focuses on women's empowerment. Still, of course, it applies to all of us who know the feeling of fighting for equality because of how we are, the way we were born, or whom we love.

Empowerment – “Individuals are given empowerment to create their own dwellings” (Definitions from Oxford Languages).

We decide what empowerment is for us, and we determine what makes us feel empowered. Being a strong, confident woman does not mean looking like a conservative businessman; it means dressing the way you like. It means loving yourself – it means being sexual and flirty one day and running the company the next.

Women are taught that being successful, taken seriously, and in control can only be reached if they restrict their life, style, personality to one conformed, defined, never swaying road.

Why is that? When we have leaders that openly misbehave and do not follow any of the strict moral codes set and preached by them. It’s because we believe “for a boy to look like a girl is degrading //’Cause you think that being a girl is degrading…” (@madonna “What It Feels Like for a Girl” 2000).

Empowerment is to control and love who you are – we often talk about “rising above” the social norm when it’s more like “rising to the equal level.” Many do not get “empowerment.” They think “it’s annoying” or “it’s already here,” – but it’s because they never felt how it is when things that you can’t change or things that make you feel complete force you to justify yourself throughout your entire life, be ridiculed and be denied opportunities.

If you are confident, if you are true to yourself and strong enough to show it proudly, then do it. You might inspire someone else out there to open up and do the same.
