Why We Need Women Empowerment Coaches Now

Why We Need Women Empowerment Coaches Now.


The first cohort of the 6-month women empowerment coach training was a success! Fifteen graduates from 7 countries and all ages are now off into the world! You can hear all about their experience here.

Our Women Empowerment Coach Certification Program is the globally first program of its kind, merging the field of Women Empowerment & Professional Coaching.


Here are 11 reasons why we need women empowerment now.


    1. Women are underrepresented in both the public and private sector. This affects how our world is shaped. For instance, only 5% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women. Of the 110 world leaders attending the COP27 climate conference, only 7 were women.

    2. The global gender wage gap is estimated to be 23%.

    3. Women are less likely to be entrepreneurs & face more disadvantages starting businesses: in 40% of economies, women’s early-stage entrepreneurial activity is less than half of that of men’s.

    4. The total fertility rate worldwide is dropping by 1% every year. This has been linked to the impact of environmental exposures, including endocrine disrupting chemicals by Dr. Shanna Swan – one of the world’s leading environmental and reproductive epidemiologists and a professor of environmental medicine and public health.

    5. Women are underrepresented in clinical trials. 80% of medication being withdrawn from the market posed greater health risks for women than for men.

    6. 80% of women will struggle with hormone health in their lives. See more statistics below.

    7. Women are expected to behave like men at work in order to break ceilings, while at the same time still being considered the main caretakers of their families.

    8. Hardwon basic women’s rights are lost in the 21st century – with Poland and the U.S. rolling back reproductive rights and the freedom to choose abortion.

    9. The World Economic Forum reports it will take another 136 years to close the global gender gap and that the recent pandemic has increased this time from a 100 years.

    10. There are several indicators that men are suffering from stereotypical gender roles and patriarchal ideals as well. Think of the gender paradox in suicide with men dying by suicide 3 to 4 times more often than women.

    11. On top of that, Human Rights Watch reports that “despite great strides made by the international women’s rights movement over many years, women and girls around the world are still married as children or trafficked into forced labor and sex slavery. They are refused access to education and political participation, and some are trapped in conflicts where rape is perpetrated as a weapon of war.


These are just a few reasons why women empowerment isn’t a ‘nice to have’. It’s a MUST. And it needs to happen NOW.


Decline in hormone health & fertility

By now the numbers show that:

  • 85% of women deal with PMS (premenstrual syndrome) in their lifetime.

  • 75% with painful, heavy periods.

  • 20% with pelvic pain or pain during sex.

  • 10% with endometriosis (which takes an average of 9 years to diagnose).

  • 5-10% with PCOS (causing 70% of infertility issues in women with difficulties ovulating).

  • 10% experience challenges with conceptions (current rates reflect 28% of pregnancies resulting in miscarriage; a 42% increase since the 1980s).

  • 15% of women deal with adult acne.

  • There’s a shocking increase in premature puberty with 15-23% of girls in the USA experiencing their first period and breast development by age 7 (!). PMS, PCOS, and endometriosis by now is found in girls as young as 12!

  • Women more often have hypothyroidism than men. Hypothyroidism by now affects up to 5% of the population, with a further estimated 5% being undiagnosed.

  • There are over 100 types of autoimmune diseases that predominantly affect women. Approximately 80% of all patients diagnosed with autoimmune diseases are women. Many autoimmune disorders tend to affect women during periods of extensive stress, such as pregnancy, or during a great hormonal change (Angum et al., 2020).

We’re collectively disillusioned with the old, we’ve outgrown patriarchal systems, while still waiting for the new. This space in-between is unsettling.
