“Empower To Transform”

Why this book?

Growing up, I witnessed first-hand how society treated women unfairly. At home, most mothers were tasked only with domestic duties, and family decisions were always decided by men. As I furthered my studies at the university, I couldn’t help but notice the senior positions such as chancellors, dean of studies, and head of departments were always occupied by men. Another observation that I made was that programs or courses that were perceived as ‘complex’ had more male professors than their female counterparts.

These observations got me thinking, why is the society set up that way? And as my young mind tried to make sense of all these things, I graduated and joined the job market. After years of being in the financial services industry, I couldn’t help but ponder on how greatly gender inequality has infiltrated our organizations and society in general.

My key motivation behind writing Empower to Transform was my vision of a society where women have equal opportunities to men.

The journey of writing this book started on one fine evening after coming across a news story on how the Covid-19 pandemic has led to an increase of incidents in domestic violence.

And as if that’s not enough, the same women were also overburdened by domestic chores. After looking up the matter even further, I realized that the effects of the pandemic were particularly more severe to women than men. Females who had to work at home found it next to impossible to operate under distractions from kids, their husbands, and the chores they had to do. Fast forward towards the end of the pandemic, most women couldn’t return to their jobs because of falling behind on many projects.

Writing this book was quite interesting for me. And I have to say that I really enjoyed discovering new ideas related to empowering women to transform.
