Supporting women is a topic that is top of mind and close to my heart. I am often trying to look for ways to support women in all areas, safety, economically, empowerment, creativity, growth and the fundamental right to show up just exactly just as they are. Because I truly believe when you support a women you support whole communities and all the people that surround her. In fact its not just a belief anymore, it’s a fact.
women lift up everyone around them
There's a long road ahead of us
It always amazes me that when you support women you really are lifting everyone up, all genders benefit; now that is how you make the world a better place. But even considering the clear case to fight for equality the statistics suggest that we still have quite a journey ahead of us:
Those statistics are shocking and hard to swallow! COVID has brought to the forefront the existing inequality that remains and been hidden from the mainstream. At the same time unfortunately, it has exasperated the gap even further. Are you interested in finding out how much of the balance of the work load you carry in your household? Once you know, you a measurable indicator to at least approach the topic of re-balancing more equally the responsibilities. Check out the "Unpaid Care Calculator" created by the UN for Women and find out where your role falls on the workload scale.
Its clear that something needs to be done, and that as women, we need to support other women, and lift each other up all around the world if we want to see real and lasting change. But this is where I always get stuck, what can I do? What can we do to help?
