The very word empowerment implies a community or gender which needs empowering as had been a suppressor. Having said that and without being cynical, the world comprises of two communities; Oppressor and Suppressor.

As time evolved and with enhanced perspective, women realized their power hence began the revolution for women empowerment.
The very word brings in hindsight the virtual projection of national security personnel or the military Para-troopers with all their heavy gears being prepped up for combat training and contingency tact and awareness.
