Why only women?

The world as a whole doesn’t provide women and men an equal share of prosperity or opportunities. Women’s access to decent work, pay and positions of power and influence remains elusive.

 

Almost all men aged 25 to 54 are engaged in the labour force (93%), whether working or looking for work; whereas women of the same age, who often juggle caring for dependents with providing financially for their families, have much lower participation rates (62%). When women are in the world of work, they are paid less (16% less on average) and occupy only a quarter of management positions across sectors.

 

Women’s share of parliamentary seats is much higher today – at 25%, as opposed to 11% in 1995 – but progress will remain slow-moving unless biases against women change in a big way. Based on the latest available data, a large share of women and men (43 and 53%, respectively) still believe that men make better political leaders than women.

Despite some advances, progress has been incremental and uneven, while women and girls, particularly from poor and rural areas often remain excluded.

Our values

Education

Lifelong learning is key to our happiness. We give women the opportunity to learn from one another through empowering one another, sharing knowledge, broadening horizons and possibilities, and continuing to grow as informed individuals.

Simplicity

Every day our world becomes increasingly more complex and difficult to navigate. We like to cut to the chase, that’s why a priority of ours is to simplify and be concise so that our content can reach the largest audience possible.

Diversity

We celebrate diversity and its enrichment of the human experience. Tolerance and respect for others, regardless of differences, is a fundamental part of life in today’s society. Therefore, we reject any kind of discrimination on our site.

Community

Shared circumstances create a strong bond and a sense of togetherness. As a collective our desires are powerful enough to increase empathy and build social support among our digital community, inspiring a global movement toward trust and kindness.

Commitment

We are committed to making true incremental change and making the biggest possible impact. Our goal is to equip women with the information, training, guidance and support critical to making a difference in today’s society.

Feminism

Societal norms have inherently presented obstacles and kept women from advancing and obtaining leadership roles in our society. We advocate for a gender equal future, equal opportunities and justice against assault and harassment.

Sustainability

Our world is facing alarming economic, social, and environmental issues. We believe that we can create a more sustainable world by raising awareness among individuals and working in conjunction with activist groups, governments, and organizations.

Cruelty-free

We are sensitive to the fact that animals are defenseless against the human race. We take human and animal rights very seriously, that’s why we want to spread the belief that no being should ever be subject to abuse and suffer unnecessarily.

Our mantras

The 5 steps to happiness

With the people around you. With family, friends, colleagues and neighbors. At home, work, school or in your local community. Think of these as the cornerstones of your life and invest time in developing them. Building these connections will support and enrich you every day.

Go for a walk or run. Step outside. Cycle. Play a game. Garden. Dance. Exercising makes you feel good. Most importantly, discover a physical activity you enjoy and that suits your level of mobility and fitness.

Be curious. Catch sight of the beautiful. Remark on the unusual. Notice the changing seasons. Savor the moment, whether you are walking to work, eating lunch or talking to friends. Be aware of the world around you and what you are feeling. Reflecting on your experiences will help you appreciate what matters to you.

Try something new. Rediscover an old interest. Sign up for that course. Take on a different responsibility at work. Fix a bike. Learn to play an instrument or how to cook your favorite food. Set a challenge you will enjoy achieving. Learning new things will make you more confident as well as being fun.

Do something nice for a friend, or a stranger. Thank someone. Smile. Volunteer your time. Join a community group. Look out, as well as in. Seeing yourself, and your happiness, linked to the wider community can be incredibly rewarding and creates connections with the people around you.

Plant trees

Climate change is the most important race against the clock humanity has ever faced. Most of its devastating consequences on our planet and human lives will be irreversible if we don’t act now. Trees play a key role in our ecosystems, and cutting them has devastating effects. Deforestation not only affects our flora and fauna, it affects humans alike.

Fortunately we can change this together!

We want to set an example as a Socially and Environmentally Responsible Corporation. Therefore we collaborate with tree-nation.com and plant a tree for every 100 new followers/subscribers.
