“Empowered” is a mural about advancing women’s rights through economic empowerment (United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 5). It highlights the work of Houston’s Women’s Commission, which aims to advance equality and equity for women in the City of Houston, and focuses in particular on economic parity. Women earn 80 cents for every dollar a man makes, the poverty rate in Harris County is 50 percent worse for women than men, and women account for a disproportionate amount of unemployment.
