Today we celebrate the many achievements of women and champion for equal rights and women’s equality for women all over the world. Women have made significant achievements in the business world, with more woman than ever leading large to small organizations. In addition, more than 12 million women are running their own businesses according to the National Association of Women Business Owners.
It is clear from the most recent presidential democratic race, that we still have a long way to go before we change gender stereotypes and sexism. The democratic race started with six bright and capable women running to be elected the first female president. However, now the race for President of the United States will continue with two men running to be the final democratic nominee. How much longer will women have to wait?
It is up to all of us to ensure equality for women all over the world. We all play a role in ensuring a gender equal world for the women we love by challenging stereotypes, sexism, and gender-based bias. Women deserve an equal shot to have significant roles in the boardroom, public offices, media, courtrooms, and we deserve equal pay in our jobs and across all forums in sports.
Let’s all be #EachforEqual (the formation of the arms symbolizes the equal sign).
