Governments and institutions all over the world are being encouraged to develop and sponsor gender leadership development programmes, policies and strategies that seek to provide women and men with equal opportunities to showcase their inert abilities for the betterment of mankind. While research has shown that ignoring women’s productive potential equals a colossal setback with significant consequence for individuals, organizations, economies and governments, the World Bank Group nonetheless takes as its starting point that no country, community or economy can achieve its potential or meet the challenges of the 21st century without the full and equal engagement of women and men.
Women are rarely newsmakers, unlike their men counterparts. News about women hardly makes front pages and often contains negative portrayals and stereotypes of them in domestic and dependent roles. They are mostly attached to the fame or achievements of husbands, sons, fathers or their children instead of people with their own capacity, achievements or rights.
