Women are Revolution

In the past, and now more than ever, women have been and are in the front line when it comes to defending, protecting, and saying what is going wrong in our societies. Women have built nations from scratch in the past and are still doing it today, worldwide. Unfortunately, we often do not find any mention of those women in books, not in school and not in university and that is unfair. We (8 brave and young women from different countries: Bosnia, Colombia, Italy, Paraguay, Mexico and Morocco) decided to change that. And the smartest way is writing about those women, that from one way or the other have started a revolution!

Nowadays, we see revolution in volunteer work, we are starting revolution now writing an article, you are participating in a revolution by reading this blog. From where I come there is a phrase “When tyranny is law, revolution is order” (Don Pedro Albizu Campos). Our new revolution is educating and sharing knowledge!

My hero is Sheryl Sandberg

My Hero is a girl
“We think that the indifference causes the main part of the problems in nowadays. But we think also that curiosity and beauty are the most important weapons to defeat those problems. So, in order to fight against the indifference, we want to make a personal question: who is your HERO? If you answer, we will learn something not only from your hero, but mostly from yourself. So please, not be shy, shared your HERO with us…”
This was our proposal and only some girls replied: the result is the description of several beautiful brave women!

Sheryl Sandberg
One of the first thing you notice as fresh graduate when stepping into the world of business is the discrepancy existing between men and women in the workplace. At a first look, such inequality is traceable in terms of participation: women in business are less than man. Organizations such as ILO and the World Bank continuously warn about the danger of this existing gender gap which represents not only a suffocation of women’s capabilities but also a threat to countries’ economic development. Being polite and educated it’s not enough for women to break the glass ceiling. In order to progress in their chosen career path, women need a thing that has been an exclusive privilege of men for long time, they need network. Here comes Sheryl Sandberg as a leading example to many women struggling to stand out in their work environment. Sheryl is not only the COO of one of the most successful tech companies of the last years but also a professional women who proved to have the intelligence and sensibility to tackle one of the biggest challenge of the modern world: empowering women in the workplace.
To do this, Sheryl founded a community in Palo Alto called “Lean In” where women from all over the world are supported and encouraged to reach their full potential. The power of the community lies in its ability to break the isolation many professional women are suffering. It also gives the chance to speak about sensitive topics such as: pay gap and sexisms at work.
With her action, Sheryl Sandberg is giving a voice to women around the world inspiring them to create the life they dreamed for themselves. That’s why she’s my personal hero.
