Founded in 2019, WomEnpowered International (WE Int.) is a membership association of young, diverse women committed to empowering women and promoting gender equality in Japan.
Our mission is to serve as a platform that empowers young women to pursue their academic, professional and social ambitions and to become a community that acts as a driving force for gender equality.
WHY WE INT.?
An enormous gap between Japanese and foreign students as well as men and women, which bars diverse women from pursuing their ambitions.
Lack of a safe space where women can engage with socio-political issues with gendered implications.
Absence of active efforts in tackling specific challenges that women face throughout their academic lives and future careers.
Lack of an inclusive and empowering women’s organization or network in Japan
