Throughout history, we all know that women always got the shorter end of the stick. Jobs, income, voting, and so much more. However, as women in 2019, we can’t dwell on the old. We need to focus on how we can conquer the new.
I mean, so far, women have been conquering the new so far. Women have been thriving in jobs and income lately. For instance, according to a study by Harvard Business School, 23 percent of mothers’ daughters got paid more than them when they were working at their age. That’s pretty amazing. Another interesting finding was that according to a catalyst article titled “Report: The Bottom Line: Connecting Corporate Performance and Gender Diversity,” stated, “Companies with the highest representation of women on their top management teams experienced better financial performance than companies with the lowest women’s representation.” Not only does this demonstrate how women are more than capable of making an impact in our world but how companies are realizing this.
Personally, I feel that society has come a long way from where we started. Even though not all women have equality in this country, we can’t deny that there was improvement. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t do better. Personally, I feel if more women participate in the women’s movement, whether it is standing up for a female employee at work or just standing up for women in general, and bringing awareness to the powerful women in society, there will be an even brighter future for America and American women.
