Women in Society

How to Empower Women Around the World

Women are key to progress in both industrialized and developing countries. In the latter, female leaders act as a catalyst of bottom-up development, and a measure of democratic governance and equality. But in Europe and America, too, development potentials of women are far from exhausted. In a small circle of representatives of politics, media and society, we discuss what we can and what we should do to support and encourage women around the globe.
