Once upon a time I started writing about women entrepreneurs.Women who tried .No matter what,they did whatever it took,to make their voice heard.Juggling home,family,love,life and ambitions.
I grew up in a middle class neighbourhood in South Kolkata.Life as a little girl was easy.What wasn’t easy was coming to terms with how life can stop you ,just because you are a woman.Strange people have the guts to ask you even stranger questions.On my quest to find whether women from all walks were facing this ,I started interviewing.Some were old friends,some new and others were yet to be friends.
One thing all women want is happiness.Not different from what everyone else wants right?
Why is it so difficult to find happiness?
A study by Kelly Global Work force Insights services has found a shocking truth.
Something which you and me already know .But is rarely openly discussed.
It’s seen that women in STEM that is science ,technology,engineering and mathematics jobs are leaving their high-profile careers at its peak.
There’s a serious lack of women in middle and higher up corporate positions.
Interestingly 46% of undergraduates in STEM branches are females.Few are visible higher up in the corporate ladder.
41% Women in STEM industries leave job after 10 years of service.
Why does this happen?
- Gender inequality in Pay.
- Discrimination in promotion and benefits during child-bearing years.
- Hostility towards women who want to balance both home and career.
Its been two years since I wrote about the first woman who inspired me.Today on Women’s day its the perfect opportunity to tell you about them.
Today I am sharing the story of brilliant , creative women who are finding ways to break glass ceilings and make it all work.
