Empowering girls and women is powerful. Today, we know it is the key to economic growth, political stability, and social transformation. World leaders, experts and scholars alike are giving their voice to this critical endeavor.
Astonishingly, the exact opposite is true on the ground. Rather than uplifting and empowering girls and women as the most powerful force for transformation and progress, horrific violence is perpetrated against them…every minute, every hour, every day.
I don’t care about the sad opinion of chauvinist men. I could care less about the opinion of women who protect this abusive behavior in men. They are worthless to me and they’ve always been. That is why I am so successful and ahead of many men. In fact, I am an entrepreneur who employs men. In my companies men and women are treated equally and paid equally, according to their capabilities and knowledge.
Now, I want to use this will in me, my own empowerment, my success, my knowledge, to help young girls and women to let them know that they are not alone and that they can become stronger, better and succeed just because we deserve it, no matter what others say.
