There are many businesses that women run, and it shouldn’t be coming as a shock to you at all. There is not just one example that we can give of a woman who excels at the business she runs but many of them. Many are working in the companies, and many are running MNCs.
But is it that easy for women? No, it is surely not that easy for any one of them. Many women have a good family background, and they support her in doing what she wants and becoming the best one. But there are a lot who still face many issues when they say they want to work and be the MAN of the house.
What are the challenges?
There are surely some advantages and opportunities that they get too. But most of them face the challenges and here, let’s talk about them in the following points,
They are under-represented
This must not come as a shock as it is the reality in a lot of places. When it comes to feminine things, no one would be asking what she does and how she feels. But if a woman wants to work and go out of the way and show that she is as strong as a man, then no, it is not the kind of work she is supposed to do. Many companies think about this now, which is why so many organisations are run and for women so that they can get what they deserve.
Many companies and executives would say that nothing matters when it comes to the job and especially not gender. But when we come to the facts and we see that women who use gender-neutral names are the ones who get the job or at least are called for the interview very easily. Women who want to make a career in a post or position that holds a lot of responsibility and the main task are leadership getting to face scrutiny. It is not something that women want to be a part of and especially not the bias.
Salary negotiation? What is that?
It is not always a success when a woman goes in and asks for a raise for the same job that her male colleague is assigned for. It is after she gets the job, but if we go according to the facts, there are only 30% of the women who got the success to get the salary that they asked for and not offered. The outcome has been less favourable, and from what we see, it will be the same in the future if there are no rules for that.
Finally, there is no way we can deny that women don’t face any type of issues or challenges when it comes to being in business or getting a job. But, still, no matter what, there will be a lot of women in business that thrive too!
