It is not easy to be a woman on this crazy planet called Earth. Everyone expects you to fit in a role they created for you. Get good grades in school. Get a job. Get married. Raise children. Serve everyone around you but yourself. What everyone is missing is that you, women, are the most powerful creatures on this planet. You don't believe it? Here are some facts.
The consulting company McKinsey indicates that ''evidence is mounting that having more women in the boardroom and senior management positions are positive for the bottom line and for society. The lack of women in positions of political power has a cost for society, too, because women often have different priorities and can be more effective where it matters. For instance, one cross-country study found that greater representation of women in parliaments led to higher expenditure on education as a share of GDP. In India, women’s leadership in local politics has been found to reduce corruption.''
In politics, women's role in designing and applying public policies has a positive impact on people’s lives and we have already seen successful Women who have built and run countries, cities, economies and formidable institutions.
