I’ve no doubt you’ve read about it – probably somewhere on social media – that women are about to rule the world.
We now have a female Prime Minister in the UK and if Hillary Clinton had won the US presidential election, I’m sure many women would have thought, “this is our time.”
But it's not about who is in power. It really is our time! Let me explain ...
You see, when most people talk about women ruling the world or the rise in the number of female entrepreneurs, often they’re referring to super powers, where women have suddenly taken on roles and positions originally only filled by men.
