Women around the world are usually underrated or underrepresented in some countries, industries, and fields. Women need to be more appreciated and give the same platform as men in other to thrive higher in society and have major impacts.
There is a saying that “what a man can do a woman can do”, this belief for some people is true and for some it is baseless but we are not going to all of that.
Women have been poorly represented in top organizations or industry, Government, finance field and the scientific or technological field. For this reason, industries, government, and private organizations and even schools have set up scholarships for women who have great academic records, and show good leadership qualities.
