Women have come a long way but they are not there yet.

Celebrating the International Women’s Day 2016 here are some highlights of the Global Gender Gap Report 2015. Women’s contribution in the global labour force has risen.
And here are the educated women in the G20. I am proud of what Indonesian women have achieved so far. To readers who are curious about Indonesian women’s contribution: read Magdalene, a slanted guide to women and issues.
On IWD site there is the following information:
The World Economic Forum predicted in 2014 that it would take until 2095 to achieve global gender parity. Then one year later in 2015, they estimated that a slowdown in the already glacial pace of progress meant the gender gap wouldn’t close entirely until 2133.
About approximately one century later gender gap would close. That is still a long way to go. Meanwhile what do we women do about it? What could you do? Visit I pledge to page from IWD to contribute. I have pledged for value women and men’s contribution equally. I truly believe every tiny step leads to a bigger one.
Happy International Women’s Day!
