How Do These Top Women Leaders Creating Global Ripples Break the Mold, Yet the Odds Are Stuck Against Them in 2020 – Part Two

The prosperity of a nation depends on the empowerment of women. Top women leaders creating global ripples despite the difficulty of breaking into male-dominated networks, accessing mentors, securing adequate funding and more make promising incremental progress.

When curating the list of top 300 Women leaders late last year (part one), we made the following shocking discoveries backed by facts.

  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.

  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.

  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.
