The purpose of this essay is to briefly examine the discriminations against women and the possible relation between women’s empowerment and children’s well-being. The study is based on a different approach, the capability approach, set up by Amartya Sen in 1980 that describe a new way to assessing a country’s wealth: dignity, rights and opportunities to live a life of value. Capabilities, functioning, agency and empowerment are the main pillars of this concept which is proposed as an alternative of a traditional paradigm. Indeed, the latter value people’s life only in terms of owned assets considering them only as an end and never as a mean to reach something else.
