Empowering Women for Better Environment

Women around the world provide more health care to their family than most of the organized health organizations.  At home, it is the mother who takes care her sick children.  When a couple grows older, because women lives longer than men, it is usually the wife who takes care her ailing spouse.  When parents grow old, it is usually the daughters who take on the care-giver role for her ailing parents.

Yet, women’s contributions to the society health care are under-valued.  Write an essay on your reflection about this issue and discuss why “empowering women” is part of the solving environmental issues’ solution.

Violence against women is still very common in most part of the world.  Discuss why the violence against women is detrimental to the environment.
