Quantitative and qualitative methodologies were employed, focusing on women’s economic empowerment core issues: the impact of globalization on employment opportunity for women, the impact of employment on women’s empowerment and impact of globalization on women economic empowerment. The findings of the study show that globalization and ICT expansion have played important roles for empowerment, source of income, on their sexuality and fertility preference. It provides opportunities for women to secure employment that has a decisive role in access to control of economic resources and liberates women to project them to be in political positions for economic decisions that enable them to become decision makers in society. The finding show that cultural impediments could be tackled by globalization and ICT expansion because, globalization gives birth to a new mindset, which promotes women’s economic freedom, they join the public sphere to participate equally with men asserting their political rights, gender equity and decision making in the home and society for women as well as men
