“You can’t be, what you can’t see”.

“You can’t be, what you can’t see” – Mariam Wright Edelman

Like so many things, you need to break down issues, otherwise, they seem just too daunting in their size, to even think where to begin. This month is all about all our young, but today it’s about the young women in our worlds. Because statistically it’s now proven how there’s a huge valley of difference when it comes to women starting a business vs men.
.
The Rose Report concluded, that women were half as likely as men to start their own business, and only a fifth of smaller firms are led by females. And, unfortunately, statistics show that women make up only a third of all entrepreneurs in the UK!
.
One of the reasons was the lack of female role models for us adults, well if that is the case for us – what hope do our young have?
.
We have to change the system (thank you so much for all your comments yesterday, it makes such interesting reading and food for thought) but we also have to understand, we need to bring the amazingness of the women who are leading the way to our daughter’s attention. We can do this at home and help them see the incredible things women are doing today. And yes, there’s too fucking few of us, but together, we can shine a light and help our daughters see a new way. A future where she’s leading her dreams and possibly changing the world! Tag yours and we can all take a moment to share with each other, whos out there and breaking ceilings, walls and any preconceived ideas of their limits!
