The study is designed to determine the effective demographic variables on the academic empowerment in general and to identify the most important barriers that may prevent the women empowerment in various sectors. The descriptive analyses are used to find the level of academic empowerment. We do not find any statistically significant differences in the Saudi women academic empowerment due to the demographic variables i.e. gender, age, score, place of residence, nature of work and experience. It is found that the most effective barriers on the Saudi women academic empowerment are weaknesses in some equipment and capabilities which may provide to the female segment in some educational institutions. The study recommends to continual support for decision makers in state institutions in general and educational institutions in particular to empower women in the academic side, activating the media role in continuing awareness of the importance of empowering women in the academic side and expanding the provision of vocational training opportunities.
