Hi Jsamantha, I'm afraid there is no translation for "empowerment" (even Wikipedia uses the English word for it).

The closest translations I could come up with are:
- "Vrouwen zelfredzaamheid": meaning "The action or faculty of providing for oneself without assistance from others."
- "Vrouwen zelfverwezelijking": meaning "The process of gaining access and developing one's capacities with a view to participating actively in shaping one's own life and that of one's community in economic, social and political terms."

Hope this helps.

Would "emancipation of women" do? That's vrouwenemancipatie.

Is not exactly the same, uuaschbaer, but in my opinion close enough and giitav is correct except her synonyms are wollig en should be wriitten as one word. An archaic solution would be vrouwenzelfbereddering. I'm thinking of a neologism that's covering the English expression something like vrouwenmachtswellust'

BTW that 'even' Wikipedia is full of English words is not so strange. Unfortunately the number of anglophiles there is huge, a vast majority so to speak. Luckily (in this case) Wikipedia is not a democracy (quote from one of the chapter leaders)

With maybe the exception of the unasked there just isn't such thing available as a dumb question - Z4us
