11 Shocking Facts and Figures Affecting Women Globally Despite Intelligent Smart Top Women Leaders Creating Global Ripples

How do terrific top women entrepreneurs creating global ripples break the mold, yet odds are still stuck against them in 2022 – Part Two (Updated 2021)

Top successful women bosses creating global ripples have more strides to cover. The prosperity of a nation depends on the empowerment of women.

Despite the difficulty of breaking into male-dominated networks, accessing mentors, securing adequate funding, and making promising incremental progress, top women in business do not tire from creating global ripples. They are not merely female influencers continuing to break molds. Nor are they just an ideal addition to a digital marketing strategy, where they speak both to the genre and gender that is poorly represented.

Each top women leader brings something unique that makes a significant contribution to their field and motivate others around them.

“Instead of yet another degrading commercial that misrepresents what women care about, why not let women tell each other how your product actually helps their lives?”

Danielle Wiley, founder and CEO of Sway Group

Which of the following facts are shocking discoveries that most top powerful women creating global ripples should have overcome by now?

When curating the pilot list of top 300 Women leaders in 2019 (part one), we made the following startling findings that affect top women go-getters creating global ripples. These odds backed by facts with the sources at the end of this blog post.

Revealing Facts Specific to Female Influencers

Cambridge dictionary defines an influencer as follows,

someone who affects or changes the way that other people behave:
a person who is paid by a company to show and describe its products and services on social media, encouraging other people to buy them:
Being an “influencer” is now a fully-fledged career choice. It is no longer just a hobby.
  • Do you read political blogs? You are an influencer because you organize petition drives and campaign events and spread the word about activities.
  • Today, teachers, coaches are sought after as influencers.
  • The current generation of journalists, bloggers, and online influencers, uses Facebook, Twitter, and other social platforms to help draw attention to their work.

Women Online

  • Eighty-nine percent of women (young and old) who use social media are on Facebook.
  • The 200 million monthly Pinterest users are a 70/30 split between women and men, but the platform is diversifying – half of the new signups are male.

Women Powerhouses

According to MediaPost,

Moms mention brands an average of 73 times per week compared with just 57 times per week among males   
As early as 2000, women were found to have surpassed men in Internet usage
Seventy-eight percent of women in the U.S. use the Internet for product information before making a purchase
Do you think with such an overwhelming female stronghold on the influencer industry, women’s pay would, at least, be equal to men?

Here are some revealing inequalities:

  1. Seventy-seven percent of influencers are women, but they’re earning $108 less per post than male influencers (Source: Klear)
  2. Women are still earning only $0.79 for every $1.00 earned by a man (Source: PayScale)
  3. In some industries like the beauty market, women earn 8% to 10% less than men (Source: Klear)

Despite all these shocking facts and disturbing inequalities, women will always be nurturing, selfless, and community-minded. But it takes intelligence, respect, and confidence for a woman to lead.

“With the inequalities laid bare, now is the time for action. Ultimately, the responsibility falls on the businesses, agencies and platforms involved to address the balance”.

– Adam Williams, CEO of the influencer marketing firm Takumi

    1. Adel,
      Achievements are a major part of our lives, irrespective of gender. These milestones keep track of developments in the lives of women globally. If we document the triumphs of women we would see them differently, right?😎 There is so much creativity which with women fight the inequalities they are faced with. The contributions women have made throughout history in science, politics, law, sports, the arts, entertainment and many other fields in society may be in leaps and bounds, but some areas are still a concern.
      We hope to see an endless list of places where women obtain achievements, and overcome hurdles not just during the women history month.
      xo xo

  1. Very informative and inspiring. Thank you so much for sharing this blog post. I love the fact that you added facts into this, as some of them I didn’t even know. The time is now for women to be treated fairly. Women created men, so it is only fair we are treated better. The time to polarize ends now. Wonderful blog.

    1. Sarah,
      Your feedback send everyone rolling in laughter 🤣😂😊

      ‘Everyone’s born of a woman?’

      Throughout the past decades women have been struggling to be equal to men at home and in the work place. Though women have come a long way, they still fight to gain that equality. The daunting fact is that gender roles are very important in our society.
      As long as women are still earning only 77% of what men earn for equal work, the issue of gender inequality is not going away. The society must have a greater awareness to combat biases that prevent women from being allowed to compete fairly and be paid equitably.
      Please share the blog post.
      We would love to see you again here.

    1. Yes Brooke,
      I know that you are an incredible woman yourself, following in the footsteps of many generations of wonderful women who built on the achievements of the last. But, gender equality remains frustratingly elusive across the globe. I mean equality of opportunity and fair treatment, without discrimination or prejudice, for men and women, whatever color, creed or background!
      Congratulations on your admirable strength!💪✨

  2. Hazlo, I am so honored that you share and participate at B.O.S.S. Thank you so much for linking and I am glad that you meet likeminded and new bloggers on that platform.

    1. Hallo Esme,
      It is a pleasure to work with a gem like you who knows how to make a friendly and inspiring blogging environment for newbies and experts alike.💎
      We love how you go out of your way to create ripples by doing things differently that creating better outcomes for bloggers irrespective of gender.
      xo xo

  3. Well, this was a wake-up call bright and early in the morning:) As it happens, I just had a talk with my kids about women’s rights and what discrimination in the job market is all about, and my husband said – but it is not really like that anymore – and I had to correct him on that. This post made it super clear that we still have miles to go, but are definitely making progress. Thank you so much for sharing, for reminding us that we have the power to bring on even greater changes to the world.

    1. Madi, 🙂
      Oh, this feedback is wholesome, especially that part that we have to involve children in this discussion of women growing while odds are stuck against them!
      We have to share these truths with our children. The fact is, men and women are different- because every individual is different- but this does not mean that they should not be treated fairly and as equals. Men and women are equal and partners, thus, they should be treated as so, both in the public and at home, with the diverse skills and ideas they bring to the table, improving collective intelligence and ability to solve today’s complex problems.
      Yes, we are making strides.
      We may have been tackling gender and other inequalities in good faith but in ways destined to disappoint, hence need to look at a gender diversity from a different lens?

    1. Ankita,
      Yes, women have put in a lot of hard work, dedication, focus and perseverance and must be celebrated year in, year out.
      And we do not deny that we have cheer leaders of women from the men’s camp too!👏👏

    1. Ellen,
      The research and discovery on women is fascinating.🙂
      Lady Gaga aside, there is proof that women in ancient Rome, a world where there was no such thing as “equal rights” or “women’s lib” women had their say.
      They had the freedom to own their property and businesses. Women had the same civil rights as men, though they could not hold public office or join the army. So we have made advances in that women today hold public office, join the army, and do other male dominated roles.
      Celebrating women is not new.

      Gaius Julius Caesar, the third Roman emperor issued coins depicting his three sisters, namely, Agrippina, Drusilla, and Julia.

      Livia, the third wife of emperor Augustus of Rome, served silently as his advisor and confidant. She was honored with the title Augusta.

      Hope you have you have filled in the form accurately so that we celebrate you too!🎇

    1. Jen.
      We will not give up hope at all.
      For centuries, one half of humanity has been regarded as effectively superior to the other.👩👨
      The benefits in just flipping things around is the creation of a world where far more of us have choices, a greater ability to be ourselves, to achieve life goals that include and, but are not limited to career choices.👈
      Lovely seeing you here!

  4. Janice,
    We celebrate you!
    We are learning so much from these link parties.
    Keep up the phenomenal work of supporting other bloggers, writers, content creators, … all getting out of the maze of the blogging world.
