What Is Project Empowerment?

Project Empowerment is the Ruth Project’s education and advocacy space, made up of a dedicated team of writers using their collective experiences and narratives. Launched on the day of our two-year anniversary, the current phase of project empowerment began with the question: what is everything a 16-year-old girl needs to know but isn’t told?

That said, project empowerment is for feminists of all ages! Our topics range from self-advocacy and intersectionality to sexual harassment and stalking. All essays included in Project Empowerment are the products of a collaborative and inclusive writing process.
