'Quero que minha filha tenha as mesmas oportunidades que eu tive e que meus filhos terão'

Pensando no futuro da minha filha, quero garantir que ela tenha as mesmas oportunidades que eu tive e que meus filhos terão. Infelizmente, as terríveis estatísticas sobre as mulheres no mundo profissional me dizem que esse pode não ser o caso: hoje, as mulheres ocupam apenas 5% dos cargos de CEO das 500 maiores empresas americanas no ranking da revista Fortune e trágico 0,3% nas 250 maiores empresas listadas no índice FTSE 250. Em 2013, o índice de mulheres em altos cargos executivos, globalmente, era de apenas 18,5%. Esses números não mudaram muito nos últimos 30 anos, então por que eu esperaria que eles melhorassem durante a carreira da minha filha?
