Today’s women are empowered, even in global communities. In a wide range of industries, women are making names for themselves. Thanks to the encouragement women are receiving and the training readily available around the world, much of which is nurtured through the internet, the limited roles of women are almost a thing of the past. Women’s empowerment is definitely making a great difference in the roles women are seeking to play in today’s global economy. It wasn’t long ago that the roles of women in many societies and in different industries were limited purely based on gender. Nowadays, with the playing field leveled in many ways through access to technology, women play very important roles and are key contributors in most developing countries.
A Glimpse Of Yesterday’s Women
There’s no way to deny that the role of women in the world has changed a lot over the years. Women today have attained positions that, in many countries and cultures, were thought to be impossible just a few years ago.
For North American women, it’s sometimes hard to imagine that women in many countries were not allowed to go to school. Jobs were limited for men, not only due to physical constraints, but because women had no access to the training for special skills needed for specific jobs. In many cultures, women were not encouraged to express opinions, and in fact, often their opinions were oppressed. Important business decisions were always made by men. The woman’s primary role was simply to bear children and to manage the household. In many societies, women were obliged to literally stay by their partner’s side and act accordingly. Even the richest women were not treated fairly. Men were favored more than the women financially, too, relative to vesting power and inheritance. Fortunately, this has changed in many places in the world. Of course, we still see a few places remaining where the old rules apply.
The Standing Of Women In Our World Today
Today, around the globe, women are awakening to their power to be the best they can be. There are so many doctors, businesswomen, lawyers, and many other successful women in careers today. In politics, women are actively participating. Women hold the office of the president, the senator, the congressman/woman, and other political leadership roles. In the field of entertainment, global women are becoming household names because of their movie hits and musical skill. In the field of education, you’ll find great teachers and leaders who are women. In the field of religion, you will find plenty of women ministers and preachers. In the field of business, there are many women who are on the top of the corporate ladder and every day, women start new small businesses. And in many cases, their success is astounding.
Women of today have the right to study, to pursue whatever profession they like, to work, to start and manage their own businesses, to express themselves freely, to get involved in social issues, to make decisions and exercise their authority, and to empower themselves for satisfaction in all that they do. And for many, that quest for satisfaction, the balance of work and life, is leading them toward roles as entrepreneurs.
Women’s as Entrepreneurs – An Edge In Business
As a woman’s sense of empowerment grows, so does her ability to conduct business successfully. With growing confidence, greater self value, and enhanced self worthiness, a woman learns to manage and handle every aspect of international business.
There have been so many business grants, opportunities, training programs and assistance offered for women today. Organizations and business & life coaching partners that help women worldwide are readily accessible, with much of this support available across the internet. Many of these organizations even offer financial support and useful, cost-effective coaching to help women ensure their success in their endeavors.
Women entrepreneurs are gaining an edge in the world of business and they surely are making tremendous contributions in their country’s development. Whether they work in small businesses or enormous ones, the fact that women of developing countries are able to contribute in the world of business is already enough to prove that women today are empowered to make great changes.
“The education and empowerment of women throughout the world cannot fail to result in a more caring, tolerant, just and peaceful life for all.” – Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, leader of Burma’s democracy movement.
Let us continue to be grateful for this evolution and the growth that is coming to our universal people and planet as a result of the empowerment of women around the globe.
