Last month I spoke at #HeadzUpBusiness alongside some amazing trailblazers . It was wonderful to see so many women under one roof here is my highlights
Women empowerment not about competing with men
There is also no excuse for keeping quiet when somebody we know is battling misogynistic behavior... There is no excuse for standing back when we see injustices suffered by women in our society," I have spent decades challenging out of date harmful cultural practices which oppress women and girls .
I have spent years working with men to champion women's rights
Women empowerment can end poverty
We need to educate girls if we want to empower them , this is the only way girls can work themselves out of poverty , we need to give them a living wage .
The role of social media in women empowerment
Social media has widely spread feminism ideologies. Hashtags and online campaigns have given women around the world a voice. Social media has shed light on women’s issues not covered by mainstream media. I hold a weekly twitter chat called #EmpowermentHour
When women succeed, nations are more safe, secure and prosperous.

We need to tackle inequalities across the globe
We need to celebrate women in leadership and look for mentors
We have to be the change we want to see
