Nurses, 90% of whom are women, and women in general, comprise the foundation of healthcare within many communities. They provide care and sustain communities through challenging and prosperous times. Their daughters often follow in their footsteps with knowledge learned from their mothers. Yet access to resources and information about resource management, crucial to economic empowerment/prosperity for women is frequently not provided or taught, generation to generation. To mobilize transformative leadership within communities based on gender equity we must ensure that women have access to resources, as well as the knowledge and tools critical to their effective management.
