Quote:We still think of a powerful man as a born leader and a powerful woman as an anomaly. Margaret Atwood
Margaret Atwood reminds us that despite the legacy of feminists before us, there is much work to be done. International Women’s Day is an opportunity to reflect upon the work of those women activists who achieved so much, and to consider how each one of us will continue to move forward the agenda of equality for women. March 8, 2013 is a day of global celebration to make the economic, political and social achievements of women.
That glass ceiling is tough to crack even today. We have not come a long way baby.
Quote:Kathryn Smith, chair of Women in Capital Markets in Canada, said the challenges continue and their analysis shows no major gains have been made over the past decade.
