A leader is defined as a person who is in charge of a group or a situation. Leaders can be seen as dynamic personality in almost every walks of life. An able leader is aware of their group’s strengths and weaknesses and knows how to utilize them efficiently. To become a leader, one needs opportunities. Even in today’s ‘progressive’ world, men can be seen dominating the major leadership roles across the table. If there are any women in a strong position, she has had to overcome struggles men cannot even begin to imagine.

Her journey starts with fighting for education. Convincing her parents to postpone her marriage, she struggles hard to achieve the level of education her male counterparts think is their right. After that, a woman is not preferred in jobs thinking that she will soon get married and get busy with children. Despite all this if a woman has managed to secure a well off job, she has to prove herself to be worthy harder than her male counterparts so that she can be taken seriously.

A person can become a good leader despite their sex or gender. This thinking that men are better leaders has stolen thousands of opportunities from women all over the world. But in this changing world, a woman’s perspective is exactly as important as a man’s. Since the early history we can see women like Rani Laxmi Bai, Rosa Parks to Malala Yousafzai and Queen Elizabeth, women are no lesser than men. The only thing they lack is opportunities.
