Making Global Waves- The Amazing Women

Galai Moss is the first Latin American to cross the Atlantic ocean solo, Dr. Habiba Sarabi is the first Afghanistan’s female governor, Dr. Josephine Namboze is the first female medical doctor from Uganda, Sarak Party is the first woman with a disability to become a parliamentarian in Turkey, the United Nations Women reports. 

Since the 90s, women have launched into space culturally, economically, socially, and politically, making lasting impacts on the global systems. 

Women and girls have made remarkable achievements in different fields. Breaking stereotypes and making history, they overcame barriers and beat the odds to make a great impact. For instance, Kamala’s victory as the United State’s vice president brought to the limelight her struggle, passion, and work, hence, being a source of inspiration to all who know her and those whose role model she is.

Importance of Women’s Achievement to the Society

Here are few examples of women who have done great in their fields and how they have impacted their societies.

In Finance

In a UN Women article titled- “Facts and Figures: Economic Empowerment”, the author opines- “Women’s economic empowerment boosts productivity, increases economic diversification and income equality in addition to other positive development outcomes.”

For instance, Frank Otto (2015), in his article titled “The 10 Most Influential Women of the 21st Century (So Far)”, states that Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has shaped the fiscal and monetary policies to be fair and that she made more impact on the most economically vulnerable globally. More so, the 66-year-old is the first woman, and the first African, to occupy the position of the Chief of the World Trade Organisation.
