World Economic Forum: Women Won’t Be Equal for At Least Another 80 Years
It’s always a let-down when we realize we aren’t as progressive as we think we are.
Based on forecasts from the World Economic Forum, professional services firm Ernst & Young estimates that women around the world will not attain gender parity for at least another 80 years. They even have a countdown on their website.
That means it will have taken nearly 250 years, at the very least, for women to have gained equality since the first women’s rights convention in 1848. Millennials will be old and gray by the time women are equal to men — or dead.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
