Empowering Women to Rise to the Top of Their Careers
Women are a vital part of the society and they play a significant role in family. Despite their many contributions to society, they still remain vulnerable in various ways. Whether it is their lack of access to healthcare, or unequal power in sexual partnerships, or their higher likelihood to contract HIV or suffer from pregnancy-related complications, there are still several issues women face on a daily basis.
It is no secret that women are still fighting for their rights today, and they deserve a platform where their voices can be heard. The problem is that too many of these voices are being drowned out by the loud minority who wish to create divides within women’s spaces. They use words like “female” in an attempt to nullify the sexual binary, but it does not work. A woman is an adult human who possesses XX chromosomes and reproductive organs, the same as a man.
In the past, history has been primarily focused on men: on kings, armies, and parliaments. This has made it harder for historians to dig up and tell the stories of women. However, the fact is that women’s stories are out there, if only you know where to look and how to find them.
Some of the most significant contributions that women have made to society are in the fields of science, technology, and engineering. The first female scientists have made it possible for people to study the universe in unprecedented depths and to make discoveries that have revolutionized our lives. Women have also contributed to the development of the world’s major religions, providing a spiritual guidance for millions of followers.
Moreover, the contribution of women in sports is unmatched as they have proved that if given a chance they can do anything. The recent RIO Olympics is a testimony of this, as athletes such as Sakshi Malik, PV Sindhu and Dipa Karmakar have successfully broken the stereotypes by showing that gender shouldn’t be an obstacle to achieve success.
It is time to put an end to the negative stereotypes about women that are still prevalent in our societies. These stereotypes tell women who succeed that they are the exceptions and those who do not that their failure is their own fault. It is high time that we start taking steps to eliminate the second-generation bias and empower women to rise to the top of their careers, industries, and societies. We can do this by ensuring that they have a safe space for learning, experimentation, and community. This will help them to build a clearer picture of their own potential and what they need in order to reach their goals. This will also make them more willing to take risks, which is a necessary step towards their growth and success. We should all support the movement to promote women’s empowerment in order to bring about a positive change in the lives of all citizens of this country.
