How can digitally empowering the women help transform the world?

It can help in transforming the world by giving a place where they can interact on an equality,hopefully leading to greater empowerment offline because equality is a prerequisite for inequality.
Furthermore , it can help to have more educated new generations because their own exposure would lead them to also give their children good education, an essential for progress, material and otherwise.
We can take the help of Malala from Pakistan.
Malala got recognized for intelligence from Pakistan , because she was digitally empowered.
She has been speaking encouraging and appreciating stuff for the women of Pakistan, the only way she has been succeeding in sending her message is through internet and media. And the only way people have been receiving the messages is through the same medium as well.
A lot still needs to be done to ensure that all the women in Pakistan are digitally empowered but what is for sure is that once they're all empowered , we will all be forced to see the difference.

Knowledge is power indeed

Malala deserves the recognition for bringing news and information to poor Pakistani women. Her little steps will someday empower the weakest citizen through correct and updated information. It may take years but at least something positive is being done. Little action is better than no action at all.

Thanks for sharing this piece, Sama.
