Empowering Women by Targeting Oppressive Factors 

By: Christina Spragg, Ph.D.

Course Description:

In order to understand the process of empowerment, we must first understand that power can take many different forms and operates in multiple dimensions. This presentation will provide an exploration of both the various forms of power: power over, power to, power with, and power from within as well as the dimensions of empowerment: the personal, the relational, and the collective. The primary focus will be examining interventions that address oppression in each dimension of empowerment. For example, developing a sense of self and undoing the effects of internalized oppression (personal dimension); developing the ability to negotiate and influence the nature of decisions made within relationships (relational dimension), and working together to achieve political impact (collective dimension).
