Abstract

Through my research of leading women activists, this book presents some valuable insights for anyone wanting to be a woman's activist. It challenges the very notion of 'empowerment', a word and an action that is familiar to most women activists’ intent on empowering women.

This book will guide the activist to adopt an approach through which they can effectively assist women. It will challenge the activist to re-engage with why they want to be an activist and how they can assist a woman who invites them to do so.
