We have seen more women serving as heads of state, such as Angela Merkel (Chancellor of Germany from 2005 to 2021) and Jacinda Ardern (Prime Minister of New Zealand since 2017). Additionally, more women are joining cabinets, parliaments, and holding influential positions in political parties.

    STEM Fields: Women are making significant strides in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. They are breaking barriers in traditionally male-dominated areas and contributing to advancements in fields like computer science, artificial intelligence, and biotechnology. Organizations and initiatives promoting women’s participation in STEM, such as Girls Who Code, are helping to bridge the gender gap in these industries.

    Entrepreneurship: Women are increasingly becoming entrepreneurs and starting their own businesses. They are launching startups, securing funding, and creating innovative products and services across various sectors. Women-focused entrepreneurial networks and funding opportunities are providing support and resources to help women succeed in their ventures.

    Sports and Athletics: Women’s participation and recognition in sports have been growing, with increased opportunities for professional athletes. Women are excelling in traditionally male-dominated sports and achieving remarkable feats. There has been progress in equal pay and media coverage for women’s sports, although further improvements are still needed.

    Military and Defense: Women are assuming more significant roles in the military and defense sectors. They are joining combat units, serving in high-ranking positions, and making substantial contributions to national security.
