Over the centuries, Women have assumed pivotal leadership roles all over the world especially in male-dominated societies. From the likes of Jhansi Ki Rani, to Mother Theresa they have all contributed to the upliftment of the status of women.
Given an opportunity, there is not a single Woman who would not volunteer her time and resources to promote the well-being of others, using skills that have been finely honed on the whetstones of education and professional experience.
Over the past year, the world has been battered by multiple crises, including a global pandemic that has affected all. But according to a study by the Centre for Economic Policy Research and the World Economic Forum, countries led by women had “systematically and significantly better” outcomes related to COVID-19.
Women are certainly not in the background anymore. However, it isn’t enough if this change doesn’t include women from all walks of life.
Women face struggles and obstacles every day at home, at the workplace and in society. This can be in the form of struggle for equality in everyday life, having to juggle home and work responsibilities, or fighting to breakthrough in male dominated professions. If we women can join our collective forces and harness our collective energies, we can together find solutions to the many challenges that hold us back from success.
Like Mother Teresa said, “I alone cannot change the world. But, I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”
