Status of Women
This chapter discusses the status of women in education, law, health, and employment. The research findings of multiple international organizations support the fact that the empowerment of women is essential for global social and economic development. According to the International Federation of Social Workers (IFSW), since social workers are committed to human rights, they must commit themselves to helping women and girls because they have not achieved social justice in any society. Due to their ethical grounding in empowerment, social workers are an ideal group to help empower disenfranchised groups.
