Women’s Day – anything worth celebrating?

Celebrating Women’s Day Properly

Comment by Steuart Pennington

MASTERCARD INDEX have, consistent with Women’s Day, published an interesting infographic on Women Entrepreneurs – the Mastercard Index on Women Entrepreneurs (MIWE) comparing how we do against the rest of sub-Saharan Africa.

It’s one of those “behind your back right in front of your eyes” statistics and it reveals the remarkable progress that we have made in respect of the advancement of Women.

All we ever hear about on the general media has to do with discrimination, glass ceilings, abuse and the like. As President Moyahan said all those years ago ‘everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but no one is entitled to their own facts.”

The Mastercard infographic below is a refreshing look at our progress.
