DEADLINE: June 1, 2006

Our Mission: Empowerment4Women is a free online magazine dedicated to
bringing the basic tenets of feminism to women and men of all ages and
backgrounds.

We are here to argue with the societal norm, which depicts those who value
feminist ideals as anarchistic, angry and radical. Empowered women are
sometimes angry, sometimes radical and, even, sometimes anarchistic. But
empowered women also know that feminism can be as big as a
globally-choreographed movement or as small as the individual realization
that something simply isn't ... quite right.

Empowerment4Women's mission is to present feminist-hearted material without
the shock factor. Rather, we present that which is reality, and then let our
readership sit back and develop their own conclusions. After all, an
empowered woman is, above all things, a woman who knows how to think for
herself.

We are not a revolution, but we dream that each and every one of our readers
will create his or her own. Because empowered individuals learn to create
their own destinies-and then invite others to join in.

Empowerment4Women. It's about you. It's about time.
