The Smile of Empowerment?

Is this empowerment?
How do we know when a person becomes empowered?
How is it measured? How do you know it has been achieved? There is no definitive answer.

Some contend the best way to measure empowerment is to ask those directly affected by the project. Can you walk into a rural village and ask 'do you feel empowered?’
