Innovative Ways to Empower African Women

Studies in Sub-Saharan Africa have shown that, on average, women with secondary education have three fewer children than those with no education at all. As a result of these benefits, as well as the importance of ensuring that the rights of women are upheld, the UN has made women empowerment an important part of sustainable development goals.  Five innovative ways that are already being recognized as restoring dignity and creating educational and economic opportunities for women are: eradicating child marriages, advocating for women’s rights, empowering women through social media, empowering African women through small businesses and empowering women through technology and energy.
