Women's Power Ignited By International Women's Day Says Best-selling Author, Heather Picken
By: AGM, LLC
According to best-selling author, speaker, mentor and women rights advocate, Heather Picken, "Women are raised and programmed to abandon their power and are instilled with a fear. A fear that submits to others to determine your destiny—we must look to leadership to reverse this practice and reignite this inherent virtue and break through these fears. International Women's Day brings this unity together, from all corners of the world, giving hope to all women that equality means gender parity and a business and work environment free of sexual misconduct."
The extraordinary emotion fueling the #metoo movement has moved across America with more women challenging the male-dominated political arena; add more women starting their own businesses; and women changing the landscape of equality in the fields of entertainment, science, and technology.
"We've seen gross violations of sexual misconduct in the fields of politics, entertainment, technology and others where males have abused their power by subjecting women to advances and being 'blackballed' when rejected. This practice has been exposed and will no longer be tolerated. Equally important is a blueprint for women of what they can do if such incidents continue—this is when uniting women together is most important—and lest we not forget that educating men is part of the solution and raising young men to respect women and for them to clearly understand gender parity in society," says Heather Picken.
