A PASSIONATE CALL FOR INTERNATIONAL GENDER EQUALITY BY A LEADING ENTREPRENEUR
This smart, accessible and inspiring book makes the case for why all nations need more women at the top of politics and economics
‘The status of women is a global challenge; it touches every human being without exception. How is it possible that countries where women have achieved political, economic and social rights after exhausting struggles remain seemingly indifferent to the egregiousness of other nations where the status of women is still tragic? The time has come to help those left behind. The lack of interest stems from two important and connected factors: public opinion with regard to the status of women is not strong enough to force lawmakers to fight for their rights, at home or abroad; and there are not enough women in political and economic leadership roles to act as standard-bearers for the campaign of reform. These two factors are inextricably linked: one affects the other and vice versa…’
Already a bestseller in Italy, this translation has been extensively revised by the author to incorporate recent events that impinge on women’s rights and the struggle to achieve equality. A vivid call for change, Diana’s polemic should be read by all who hold powerful positions in government, industry and the arts.
