The everchanging role of Women in the Workplace – then and now
“We are becoming the men we wanted to marry,” Gloria Steinem declared in the 1970’s. This statement by the American journalist seems to have taken shape today. The scenario of women in our society is ever-changing. Today, almost half the workplace consists of women, they are contributing to the global issues we face, at large and, are financially independent.
We are becoming the men we wanted to marry.
Women now are not only seen as an essential part of the workforce, but also viewed as a likely source of economic and social development. Because of the number of initiatives introduced by the visionary leaders of the UAE, the number of working women and female entrepreneurship in the UAE is on the rise.
Let us talk about the recent evolution, so to speak, that took place in Saudi Arabia, where women are now legally allowed to drive. Steaming ahead of the crowd, women today are creating an impact wherever they go, much like the philosophy at Mojay. We aim to make an impact in every field that we plan to undertake.
The changing landscape of women’s working situation is swift and will continue to evolve at a rapid space.
A recent study by the United Nations has cited that advancing women’s equality in the workplace could boost global gross domestic product (GDP) by $12 trillion by 2025. In 2018, the UAE government’s exciting announcement of the 10-year visa rule is likely to encourage more female investors to set up their own business in the UAE.
In addition, part of the UAE government strategy is to become one of the world’s top 25 countries for gender equality by 2021.
