1. Introduction

Whether we like it or not, we live in a society where there are differences between individuals. Some of these differences are marked by the POWER that these individuals have or do not have. 

This is something clear, but have we stopped to think about what power means to us, and beyond that, do we know how we can help a person or a group of people to take that power? We talk about empowerment, but we need to know what power means and whether it is possible to empower someone.
