Women In Business

Yes, women are taking over – and it’s a good thing

on


It wasn’t until 1792 that a woman stood up for her gender and declared that all women should be treated the same as men. Mary Wollstonecraft cried that women were not born to be slaves meant to satisfy a man’s desire. From the 1800s, the march for women’s rights has made tremendous gains. Women are better represented in the workplace and run millions of businesses worldwide. Here are the 4 things that led to women ruling the business world.

Women embrace their femininity

Women are beautiful and strong. Stories of brave women were becoming more and more common by the 1900s. Yet, in the workplace, women were shying away from their feminine side. Men looked down on women who wore pink or because the traditional woman didn’t demand respect. The issue with that was that a woman shouldn’t have to be a man to live and thrive in his world. A woman should be able to embrace her femininity without losing respect in regards to her work position.

To fix this, all it took was a mindset change. And the modern woman made that change with ease. Now more than ever, women are embracing their femininity in the workplace. They are separating themselves from the men that looked down on them and by doing that, they are gaining significant speed in the business world. Now companies with more female executives are shown to perform better than those with more men. Even more significant, of the 15 jobs expected to grow the most in the next 10 years, 13 are jobs that are predominantly women.

Gender gaps in education

When it comes to college education, women are taking the lead. 72% of recent female high school graduates enrolled in college while only 65% of males enrolled. If this gap continues to increase, it will no longer be the man’s world. It will be a woman’s world.

Women now hold 62% of Masters degrees, 50% of law or medical degrees, and 42% of MBAs. They are letting their voices be heard across the nations.

In the 1950’s only 23% of college graduates were women, but now 58% of graduates are women. Women are taking their education to the next level and recognizing the need for them to be strong and intelligent. Females should feel motivated in college endeavors and continue to increase their educations. They should also continue to encourage younger girls to move on and pursue college degrees–no matter what their future profession might be. Who knows, this might be the very thing that this world needs to finally even out any gender biases left in the United States.

Smart investment choices

If there is one thing that men feel like they dominate, it is the stock market. Far fewer women invest their money in the stock market than men. Studies show that women invest less and are more conservative in their stock choices. The stock market can be an intimidating idea and for women who haven’t invested yet, it’s daunting. Women naturally want to know what they’re doing before they do it–they are far less impulsive than men and so have more potential when it comes to outperforming men in the stock market.

Even though fewer women are investing in stocks, they are still making more profits from the stocks that they invest in. Women outperform men by 0.4% in the stock market. This is because women buy and hold. They choose the right stocks at the right time and then hold onto them.

Becoming business owners

The Nation Association of Women Business Owners reported that in 2017 more than 11.6 million firms were owned by women. They employed 9 million people and generated $1.7 trillion in sales. Women own 36% of all business. Seeing that, 50 years ago, women business owners were extremely rare, 36% is an astounding number. Women are taking hold of the business world and making it their own.

Men will need to watch out in the next couple years. As feminism is rising, women are becoming more and more vital to the business world. In a few short years, the business world will be for the women.

      Women claim they don’t think they are superior to men yet the blog above claims it a good thing women are taking over women constantly say they want equality but if they think they are susperior they are lying for why would people who think they’re superior want equality with people they think are inferior.

      What does history teach us about what happens when people who think they are superior gain the reins of power? History screams at us don’t let people who believe they are superior gain power. History warns us that people who believe they are superior come into power they will almost always,not just likely or most probably but will always either subjugate or annihilate those believed to be inferior.

      Just look what happened when white supremacist gained control in the Americas. Black people were enslaved and the red race was practically annihilated.Wake up Men before its too late When women say its a good thing for them to take over they are revealing their true colors.

      We already know what will happen if women take over. The Holy Bible God’s word informs us that in the end times which todays world conditions were for told informs us that things will get so bad that even the Elect will be lost if God does’t shorten the end thereof ” King James Bible
      And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. So here’s a warning ladies God put the man in charge for a reason.

      If woman are taking over is a good thing as Sophia contends than why does Sophia Belnap feel the need to warn men to watch out? Apparently its only a good thing for women. any time anything is only good for one gender is a bad thing for society. why then does Sophia think that something that’s bad for society is a good thing?

      Women taking over is not a good thing because anything that is only good for one gender is bad for society. If Sophia had given us some ways in which women taking over would benefit the male gender also then she could make a case for women taking over being a good thing.

      She also should have given a thank you for the many brothers who have been helping women to catch up.Without continued male help women will not catch up. Many men including myself want to see women catch up because we believe both genders will do better when both genders share in the leadership of society.

      However when we see a picture of men bowing down to women we begin to have second thoughts about helping women gain in leadership. We want women to be our equal but if women think they are superior and want to get ahead of men in order to subjugate us then in self defense men need to stop helping women because why should we help people to subjugate us.

      Let this be a warning to women put aside any feelings of superiority and display gratitude for those brothers who are helping you and look for ways you can help boys to catch up with girls in education by doing so would send the signal to men every where that women aren’t out to dominate us. Unless that signal is sent men will withdraw our support out of self defense.
