One of my sisters is famous for saying “do not disrespect the person who feeds you”. For generations women have been disrespected and died because of corporate leaders who breathe cheap labor. It is no surprise that women are at the bottom of the leadership ladder globally. Cheap labor continues to cost the poor (the majority are women) their lives, contaminated environments, and lack of access for a better future.

You can lift someone simply by reaching out.

We’ve seen stereotypes of women ranging from the boardroom to the bedroom; that of the dragon lady boss, to the portrayal of the juvenile “kitten” dressed in a “baby-doll” outfit, to the subservient female dominated by men dripping with machismo, to dangerously thin and impossibly beautiful waifs, and finally, to the promiscuous “femme fatale”. In hip hop music, women are often portrayed as “hoes” while television sitcoms and commercials continue to objectify women, despite holding careers as lawyers, doctors, and engineers.
