Abstract: 過去幾十年來,人們對全球不平等現象有了普遍的認識。2015年實施的可持續發展目標就是證明。性別平等是實現2030年可持續發展議程的一個重要因素,該議程希望建立一個普遍尊重人權和人類尊嚴的世界,"每個婦女和每個女孩都能實現性別平等,並消除賦予她們權力的所有法律、社會和經濟障礙"(聯合國,2018)。這篇研究論文重點關注減少性別不平等的目標之一,即:婦女賦權。
Gender equality is critical for the achievement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which aspires to a world where universally respected human rights, human dignity and “equality of gender [are] a reality for every woman and every girl and where all the legal, social and economic obstacles to their empowerment have been lifted” (UN, 2015). The 2030 Agenda affirms gender equality as a necessary foundation of a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world. This research thesis focuses on one of the flagship goals of reducing gender inequalities: women's empowerment.
More specifically, I will look at it in the context of developing countries and with a view to social transformation. The study suggests that in the environment of Myanmar, social enterprises can be used as an efficient model for the empowerment of women, helping achieve economic independence, overcoming poverty through asset building, and improving the well-being of families and communities. I will try to define what are the challenges that can arise while highlighting the effects of such an approach. I will base my analysis on a case study carried out in the Dry Zone of Myanmar, thus illustrating concretely the potential but also the challenges and limitations of social entrepreneurship and its collective action, active participation, and local initiatives. Discussing major challenges of social entrepreneurship in Myanmar, I will bring an exploitable practical contribution, under the guise of a rigorous contextualization, by the various actors in the field of international development to help them in their understanding of the concept of women’s empowerment and the organizing of social enterprises and planning of their programs. I also propose a line of theoretical reflection on the place of men within this concept to promote the development of the whole of society.
