For women to be empowered and achieve equality, they need to be participants at the decisionmaking tables and conferences where important decisions are made. Equal opportunities for women translate into the improvement of the lives of families and communities. This article reports on a systematic review of articles related to equal opportunities for women through education, mentoring, skilling and innovation. Research published between 2010 and 2021 was reviewed. The outcomes show that a lot more needs to be done to support women achieve their goals in education, work and politics. Providing equal opportunities for women is the responsibility of all and needs commitment and a wholesome approach. The paper discusses the issues that need to be addressed to ensure equality for women and explains the implications for governments, Nongovernmental organisations, universities and philanthropists.
