  • Extraordinary and magnificent presentation from very conscious man dear George.
    I agree with you. I would also like to add a few of my opinions.
    1) First of all, it is necessary to educate men on this matter. It is also necessary to educate women for their rights. Women has to struggle for their equal rights
    2) İt depends to the personality of the people. There isn’t a difference between some men and women on this subject.
    3) For raising the level of political consciousness of the society intense training in schools and visual media definitely should be implemented.
    4) All states should review all organizations established according to Bretton Woods Agrement.
    Congratulations and thanks for sharing this very useful presentation

    PS. Nowadays I read three books. I will forward the names of them.

  • AN IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS OF THE IMPORTANCE OF WOMEN IN SOCIETY.....

    I APPRECIATE THE MENTION, GEORGE!

    I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO ADD THAT FOR MARRIED WOMEN ESPECIALLY, IT BRINGS PEACE AND HARMONY IN THE HOME IF THE HUSBAND IS 100% APPRECIATIVE, ENCOURAGING, SUPPORTIVE AND UNDERSTANDING OF THEIR WOMEN’S TALENTS AND ABILITIES. SUCH AN ATMOSPHERE IN THE HOME FOSTERS A WIDER AND GLOBAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE WOMAN’S ROLL IN SOCIETY.....

    I HAVE TWO DAUGHTERS AND MY HUSBAND PUSHES THEM TO REACH THEIR MAXIMUM, JUST AS HE DOES WITH ME; SO THIS SHOW IS ESPECIALLY WELCOMED IN MY HOME!!!

    WELL DONE, MY FRIEND!

    One of your best!.. ; ))) Thanks for the mention..

    If Man didn't already know these facts you put forth in your presentation..
    it's time for them to take note!.. or get left be-hide..
    In poor undeveloped countries.. woman are their greatest asset!.. yet they ignored and held back!..
    Women vote more.. volunteer more and we give more than men!.. woman control over half of the total wealth
    in all of North America . Women aren't a niche.. we are the primary change-makers .. peacemaker.. woman are highly motivated
    and engaged segment of the population..
    I could go on and on but your presentation is full of the straight facts!..

A few of the reasons why women’s participation and leadership are so vital.

  1. 1. A few of the reasons why women’s participation and leadership are so vital.<br />
  2. 2.  Every year, the World Economic Forum releases the Gender Gap Report, which assesses the progress that countries have made toward gender equality. It looks at the gap between men and women in a given country on four indicators: access to health, education, economic opportunity, and political empowerment.<br />
  3. 3.  Where the gap is closest to being closed – where men and women are more equal – those countries are more prosperous and competitive. Greater progress is being made in access to health and education than in economic and political participation. <br />
  4. 4.  “Until women around the world are accorded their rights and afforded opportunities to participate fully in the lives of their societies, global progress and prosperity will have its own glass ceiling.” When women progress, all of society progresses - men and women, boys and girls.<br />
  5. 5.  Studies, show that women-run small and growing businesses are particular accelerators of economic growth – one of the highest yield investments to grow GDP. Yet women confront significant barriers in establishing and growing their businesses. <br />
  6. 6.  Women most often lack access to finance, but also to markets, to training, to mentors, to networks, and to technology. They also frequently face discriminatory regulations, policies and practices that are deeply entrenched. In some countries, they lack property, inheritance, or land rights. <br />
  7. 7.   Promoting women is good business. Study after study has shown that fully integrating women in business at all levels has positive impacts. According to the research, companies with women on boards of directors outperform those with no female representation by 41 percent. Furthermore, women control the overwhelming majority of consumer spending. <br />
  8. 8.   Companies with leaders who actually understand women’s experiences, perspectives, and motivations - companies which hire women to serve as executives, product designers, and marketers – those companies will have a competitive edge over those who don’t do so.<br />
  9. 9.   Women also comprise the majority of students graduating from undergraduate and master’s degree programs. This is a trend in many countries today. To remain competitive in the talent and knowledge-driven economy of the 21st century, companies simply can't afford to ignore the workers who have the talent and education to succeed in the workplace.<br />
  10. 10.   Women hold the keys to creating stronger, more prosperous societies. Studies show that there is a positive correlation between investments in women and poverty alleviation and a country's general prosperity. Women spend upwards of 90 percent of their income on their families and communities – on improving the health and education of their families.<br />
  11. 11.    For women like Doina, Vanessa, Lia, Chitra, Noemi, Sheereen, Charlotte, Herminia, Sally and so many others, all of you whom I honor in this presentation – you have been blessed with opportunities to flourish. <br />
  12. 12.    It’s been said, "Some people see things as they are and ask why; others imagine how they could be and ask why not.” <br />Chris Rea sings “You Got Soul”<br />
