  3. Why Women Empowerment is Important?
  4. What makes each of us who we are? • Is it role in a family (e.g., daughter, sister, mother), our hobbies and interests (e.g., guitar player, football fan), our background (e.g., religion, race, nationality, hometown, place of birth), and our physical characteristics? OR • What skills and different roles I play in life; my situations define me or the labels that others put on me, While others see me as having that identity, I don't.
  5. What is Identity? • Identities are the traits and characteristics, social relations, roles, and social group memberships that define who one is. • Identities can be focused on the past-what used to be true of one, the present-what is true of one now, or the future- the person one expects or wishes to become, the person one feels obligated to try to become, or the person one fears one may become. • Identities are orienting, they provide a meaning-making lens and focus one's attention on some but not other features of the immediate context. • Together, identities make up one's self-concept variously described as what comes to mind when one thinks of oneself, one's theory of one's personality, and what one believes is true of oneself.

  7. What is Self? • Self is both a product of situations and a shaper of behavior in situations. • Making sense of oneself-who one is, was, and may become, and therefore the path one should take in the world-is a core self-project. • An individualistic perspective focuses on how one is separate and different from others, but people can also consider how they are similar and connected via relationships (sometimes called a collectivistic perspective). • An immersed perspective focuses on the self up close and from inside the mind's eye, but people can also consider themselves in other ways. They can consider how they might look from a distance, how they might look from the outside, in the eyes of others.
