Introduction To Women Who Prove That Persistence Really Pays Off

You need to know that the International Women’s Day was just celebrated not too long ago. If you are wondering why there is a particular day intended for the celebration of Women’s Day, the you need to know that it is there for the purpose of celebrating women, all women, regardless of what country they belong to or where they are. Regardless of your color, your size, your shape, your background, your religion and even your race, regardless of who you are or where you from, as long as you’re a woman, this day is for you. The main reason why International Women’s Day exist is not only about celebrating women, but it is more on identifying their achievements as well as the struggles that they have been through, or perhaps still going through, and also to highlight the gender gap in terms of perception and equality and such a day is very important and meaningful for them.

Albeit the fact that there is already a huge progress happening for the last few decades but, the truth of the matter is that it is still not where it should be and this is something quite disheartening. Even with the huge progress in building up women, there are still some unfavorable circumstances that seems to stick with them, stereotypically such as being massively underrepresented at board level, getting paid eighteen percent less than the average and being overlooked disproportionately in terms of promotion and the like, notwithstanding if it is consciously done or not.

But, this kind of situation is possible to be changed, to be broken and we want all the women across the globe to stand up and held their heads up high, to not be afraid and just think of themselves as mere “women” since it is now possible for them to go from rags to riches, albeit the many challenges along the way. With persistence, anything can be made possible and you have to believe in that. For that reason, we hope that the women we will be introducing to you in this article will inspire you and motivate you to be the best woman you can be as they themselves made it possible to break the high glass ceiling, proving that with persistence, anything is possible.
