Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to create leading change through policymaking to create a more gender-equal world by engaging women in leadership roles so that they can re-design society to benefit everybody and not just the white-male default.
It's all part of making a better world.
A society which no longer oppresses women as a result of greater female representation in leadership, policymaking and politics. This will result in female issues being brought to the forefront in decision making, thus shaping a more equal society e.g. free menstrual products in school, free childcare for children under 5 etc, a free bus pass for women with children etc
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by women across the country as greater female representation is achieved then more and more inclusive policies will be passed to benefit everybody. A gender-equal society benefits everybody as women bring a fresh perspective which results in increased creativity and productivity and an overall increase in national GDP benefiting the economy.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Greater female representation in politics, policymaking and general decision making.
Decreased female unemployment
Free menstrual products being provided to those on benefits and in homeless shelters
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
I will measure the success of my vision by achieving the three outcomes listed above. Gaining greater female representation is obviously the number one priority and is the catalyst for change in terms of restructuring our society and achieving gender equality.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
