Today is International Women’s Day, that specially marks the mystique of women. A woman is the abundance of love, an image that floats is exterior tenderness and inner strength. But women have now come to be known to be strong in every way. As a mother she takes on her responsibility more accountably than the man who has pledged togetherness in most times. Playing a momentous role in the life of her child.
Today gender equality is most topical and yet despite the leaps and bounds of technological advancement, gender equality remains a debate. In America it is the women that earn more college degrees compared to men, and this has been the case for thirty years as stated by McKinsey and Company. Yet the opportunity a woman holds in the corporate world is less compared to men. It is interesting to note that the women’s demographic rate is high in top positions, the percentage of woman as 82% social workers, 98% are speech language pathologists, and 93% are dental assistants.
In India, women’s dominance is visible in the fields of teaching, nursing and Gynecology. Woman’s day is indeed a noteworthy day to celebrate the vast responsibilities a woman holds and also to ponder upon and encourage a stronger climb in the workforce and gender equality. Remember Mrs. Indira Gandhi, possibly the best Prime Minister the country had. Let’s make an example of her and climb the highest office in our careers.
