Who is an EMPOWERED woman?

An EMPOWERED Woman is not a Woman who has gone to school.
Education without the proper FACILITIES for implementation is still SLAVERY.
An EMPOWERED Woman is NOT a Woman who has Money.
Money in the hands of one with ZERO courage to spend on what ADVANCES them is useless.
An EMPOWERED Woman is ONE who has been told:
YOU CAN BE WHATEVER YOU WANT.
YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOUR MIND DESIRES.
YOU BELONG TO NO ONE BUT YOURSELF.
Those words are what makes a Woman UNSTOPPABLE, UNCONTAINABLE, and by
George, INDESCRIBABLE. You have given her a blank canvas and said: PLAY!!!!
You thought you knew what being EMPOWERED was right?
Well, there you have it.
