WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP: Achieving an equal future in COVID-19 world.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us both positively and negatively. Positively, spending more time with family and friends, getting to know friends more, reflecting on our lives, discovering our gifts, fulfilling our purpose and more. Negatively, loss of love ones, loss of jobs, poverty, destruction of countries economy and more. Regardless of all these, we should always celebrate our women.
Celebrating every woman in our daily lives is nothing but an ambitious and appreciative thing to every female around the world. Every woman has being built strong, independent, intelligent, hardworking, beautiful, successful, supportive, talented, respectful, to lead, caring, raising young ones and more.
But sadly, these women face discrimination, harassment, inequality, oppression, rape, domestic violence, broken relationship, lack of education, death.
According to research from International Women’s Development Agency, 87,000 women are killed every year just because they are women. Of those 50,000 are killed by their male partners or family members and those are the only deaths we know about. 111 countries have no repercussions for husbands who rape their wives, 2.7 billion women are legally restricted from having the same choice of jobs as men, 45 countries do not have specific laws against domestic violence, 35% of women globally have experienced sexual or physical violence.
All these facts on issues faced by our today’s women needs to be recognized. In this world, every woman in one way or the other has contributed highly to the changes of the world. What a man can do, a woman does better. Therefore, if men are celebrated, why shouldn’t a women be celebrated too? Why shouldn’t they have equal opportunities as men?
There is no limit to what we as women, can accomplish.Michelle Obama
