Women's empowerment refers to the process of providing women with the tools, resources, and opportunities they need to become more independent, self-sufficient, and able to participate fully in all aspects of society. The concept of women's empowerment is rooted in gender equality and seeks to address historical and ongoing discrimination and disadvantages faced by women specially in the Peruvian Andes.
