Recently a statement was given by Julia A. Simon, who is working as Mary Kay Inc.’s chief legal officer and chief diversity officer. Statement was given on the occasion of 100th anniversary of passing the 100th amendment giving women’s right to vote in States the United.
The statement given states that 100 years ago today, the combined voice of women of US became more vocal with the passing of the amendment bill. A women’s right to vote gives her the acknowledgement of her thoughts, ideals and beliefs being recognised at the ballot box. This centenary is worthy of celebration, but the fight for women’s rights is too far from over. If one goes by the World Economic Forum, it reveals that at current rate, it will take 140 years to achieve gender equality in top leadership positions and 99.5 years to have a gender equal world.
She also said that Simon wants to uplift the peers in private and public industries to escalate women’s voice not only in business but also in the world. Support and accommodate your employees’ right to vote and make conscious choices to promote and hire women at every level of the organization. She also encouraged women to always exercise their constitutional and human right to vote in all local and national elections. Democracy is not a spectator sport.
