We’re thrilled to announce Simon Community as our charity partner in Hacking for Humanity.
I am a woman and a great supporter of woman empowerment. As per definition, women empowerment is the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling our own life and claiming our own rights. For as long as I can remember I have been called ‘A Feminist’, probably because I have always dared to speak up and use my voice to defend those who couldn’t speak, in particular women & girls. I cannot say if that nickname is a positive one. What I know is that I want to see more fairness of treatment and equality between genders.
