This article reveals the role of women's empowerment, and how it enables their essential role in the economic, social and environmental sphere, turning into a transformational leadership that allows their voices to be heard. This work arises as a result of the research project called "Community Self-Management for psychosocial development of the El Hormiguero township of the city of Santiago de Cali (Valle del Cauca)", developed by a group of professors of the psychology program at the University Antonio Nariño-Cali, who are part of a research group. The results show that in recent decades women have gained important spaces. The discourse of these elderly Afrocolombian women is of great richness insofar it combines popular knowledge, as collective knowledge situated in everyday experiences and as a tool to facilitate the participation and strengthening of identity.
