The result of the reseach shows that Aisyiyah Lampung province has successfully performed some efforts of empowering women in many sectors of life such as education, economy, social welfare, religion and environment. The supporting factors of this success are the existence of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Aisyiah Lampung province and Aisyiyah head office Jakarta and also MoU between Aisyiyah Lampung and goverment’s  institutions in Lampung.
