    Empowering women couldn't be a one time or a one party(i.e. government)activity. It should be well orchestrated among the stakeholders. Above all, starting from drafting the plans and projects, it must be based on the participation of the women. I am highly believed that women empowering is not only the tool to eradicate poverty. It's also a home remedy to fight terrorism at the familg level.

    I definitely agree with both of you. Lack of education, and poverty in a broad way, are main factors that undermine gender equality. But on the other hand, as Ann Kele said above, culture, traditions and religion play a big role in sustaining that inequality. Saudi arabia's literacy rate was of 94.4% in 2013 and its GDP per capita was of $25,961.8.But we all know that Basic Law of Saudi Arabia does not guarantee gender equality.It requires that the government be premised on equality in accordance with Sharia law; but under Sharia law, women are considered to be legal minors, under the control of their mahram.
    I then believe that, aside from classic programs of fighting against poverty, much effort must also be put in promoting mindset and policy change in conservative societies such as the one of Saudi Arabia.

    I believe that in Africa more women should have an education in order to become leaders and help their countries.Men can not only always be leaders in everything that is why both men and women should have equal opportunities. Therefore I agree
