SK-II Empower Me Campaign with UN Women Singapore & Image Flair

1.5 billion people worldwide live on less than 1 dollar a day, & 70 percent of them are women. According to a United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) study in 1995, women carry out more than two-thirds of the world's work - the equivalent of 11 trillion dollars or almost 50 percent of world GDP. Women also shoulder almost all responsibility of meeting the basic needs of the family. Yet, they only receive an estimated 10 percent of the world's income & own only 1 percent of the means of production.

SK-II has teamed up with UN Women Singapore & popular image styling consultancy Image Flair to unveil its first-ever EMPOWER ME Campaign in Singapore recently, to give the gift of empowerment to young at-risk women by equipping them with social knowledge & enhanced image styling skills to secure better employment opportunities & career advancement.

Members of the public did their part to spread the message of empowerment simply by purchasing S$500 worth of SK-II products, entitling them to pledge their commitment at the SK-II Empower Pledge Wall.

UN Women is the United Nations’ Entity for Gender Equality & the Empowerment of Women, active in most countries of the world. “Economic empowerment for women has been one of the key issues we champion strongly at UN Women Singapore, which is why we are honoured to partner SK-II for its first-ever EMPOWER ME Campaign. ‘The Empowerment Effect’ Workshops funded by SK-II are designed to instill young at-risk women with greater self-esteem & confidence, propelling them towards making a successful transition to self-sufficiency,” explained Trina Liang-Lin, President, UN Women Singapore.
