Empowerment of Women
“Pope Francis understands that empowered women and girls reduce poverty for everyone, because women invest so much in their families and communities. His Holiness’s recent comments on gender equality and the 'scandal' of wage differences between men and women help everyone to see how these questions relate to ending poverty—and to ensuring justice.” - Melinda Gates
Daughters of Wisdom in the United States work to educate women, encourage them to develop their God-given potential, help them work their way out of poverty and become empowered leaders in the church and civic community.
MARCH 8- INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY
March 8, International Women’s Day, is an occasion to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, political achievements; and acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.
This 2018 theme of International Women’s Day is #PressforProgress - a strong call-to-action to think, act and be gender inclusive. Join us in a prayer service for this day created by our Sisters from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
