"Countries with more gender equality have better economic growth. Companies with more women leaders perform better. Peace agreements that include women are more durable. Parliaments with more women enact more legislation on key social issues such as health, education, anti-discrimination and child support. The evidence is clear: equality for women means progress for all." -Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on progress we were able to achieve. It’s hard to look back and think that not too long ago there were little to no woman working let alone, making music, acting, or writing. Woman were stereotypical the home makers for so long, to long. So it’s amazing to look at the woman heavy culture were so fortunate to have today. Between the singers who dominate the charts to the actresses we love. Woman have made quite the jump. And although there are steps to take till full equality. I think if the girls here on tumblr are any indicator of the future, then the men better watch out, because we can prove were just as good as you!
