It has also become quite a necessity that women take up leadership positions and there are several reasons for it. Gender equality has got to do much with it. In many parts of the world, women rights are violated just because there is no concept of gender equality. Even if there was one, the only ones who can enforce them upon people can be women.  It is therefore quite instrumental that women take up central positions in each and every sector of human life.

Women education is now on a rise and it has instilled the idea of moving forward in women without being fearful. Younger girls look up to female businesswomen and entrepreneurs as their inspiration and follow them.

If women are empowered in the field of business, they can penetrate through a male-dominated business with much more ease. It is quite crucial because then there will be more openings for female workers and professionals to find their feet in the market and stand shoulder to shoulder with other men as an equal in business.

Since women have to go through this fight based on gender since a very tender age, they are much more sympathetic to other women’s causes. It is not the same in case of men. Women who are sympathetic to other women, if given power, are more likely to address female problems related to health, education, poverty and gender equality. Women need to be represented by women.

According to studies, women have the capability of driving funds and investments towards humanitarian issues.
