Empowerment4Women.org is a free webzine dedicated to bringing 3rd wave feminism to women and men of all ages and backgrounds.
Here is how Carly Hope, the Editor and Publisher of empowerment4women.org describes their mission
"Our belief is that every human has the ability for greatness.
Our hope is that one day every woman will be given the opportunity and the courage to discover her own sense of empowerment.
Our promise is to do our best to demystify what it means to be a feminist. We are simply a group of women and men who support a woman's equal place in society. We have the equal right to vote. Now we want that same right to our bodies, our schools, our careers, and our families.
Empowerment is within each of us. Tap into your power. Reach your full potential. And above all else, do what makes you happy."
