What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Women’s empowerment can be achieved when women and girls acquire the power to act freely, exercise their rights, and fulfil their potential as equal members of society. To this end, the Government and many development partners in Ethiopia are working to address women’s empowerment in order to promote gender equality by ensuring equal access to economic opportunities and education.

Hence, this guide is to highlight institutions which are engaging them to support women’s ability to create businesses and secure their  livelihoods, encourage financing for female-owned businesses and empower women in decision-making about production, the use of resources like land, water, or capital, and control over income.
