The fact of the matter is that there is a long-standing issue based on how we divide and assign roles based on sex and how that debilitates nearly half the world’s population, women. Amazons Watch magazine recently featured the Top 100 Most Influential Women in Emerging Economies to Watch in 2018, and while most of the issue focuses on women inciting change, the Publisher’s Note from Furo Giami reminds readers that this change is necessary because there’s a problem. Much to my dismay, the glass ceiling lives on into 2018.
The first step in rectifying this disparity required us to acknowledge it though. So, around the world, we have seen walkouts like the ones held in Iceland and France, where women left 14 percent earlier in their day to symbolize the average 14 percent less women receives in wages. The 2017 Women’s Marchthat took place internationally became a chance for both genders to come together and stand in solidarity against the injustices many women face. My point is — people can no longer hide from the truth. The gender gap exists. Now that we see and experience firsthand this divide, we need to make an active attempt to combat it.
