At the moment I am taking a great class at Stanford in Design Thinking, and this semester I have focused on women in the arts. For my class I had to research quite a bit, and looking back at my mother’s lifetime, it can be argued that women have made the most progress in such a short timespan. The 2nd world post-war served as an equalizer in many ways: It elevated women to a higher standard, to move towards closer equal rights, to an increasing female workforce, to independence and of so many untold stories of bravery.
It tells us that with a narrowing socio-economic gap, women and other minorities thrive and move up to achieve their full potential.
So if historical statistics is a guidance, and we continue to raise awareness, we are going in the right direction, and that if we continue to use this compass towards the goals we want, we can accomplish more of these goals over successive generations.
So, for your next project Be Brave and hire a woman:-)
