Here’s Why Sistas Are Doin’ It For Themselves In Business
Have you noticed that there are lot more female entrepreneurs out there? And these entrepreneurs aren’t only carving out their own career path in the world of business; they are in fact joining forces and teaming up to create powerful all-female businesses and companies. This is definitely a case of sistas doin’ it for themselves!
But why, after so long, are women only just deciding to join forces now? Here are some potential reasons.
Kicking Back Against Sexual Harassment
Over the past few weeks, there have been many allegations of sexual harassment in various industries and business sectors. One of the most reported was all the allegations made towards Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood mogul. It seems that sexual harassment has actually been a huge problem in many industries across the world. And, as a result, women are now choosing to work together so that they are not put at risk by working closely with men.
Closing The Gender Pay Gap
Another of the main problems that many women in business face is the gender pay gap. Most men get paid a significant sum more than women, even when they work in the same role and carry out the same tasks and jobs. One way that many women are trying to combat this is by setting up their own companies and ensuring that their staff are paid the same across the board. Rather than going it alone, women are choosing to set up their own companies in teams or pairs for extra support.
Watching Each Other’s Backs
Women are also great at watching out for each other. Thanks to this squad mentality, it means that they work really when whenever they take part in any business ventures together. As an entrepreneur or business professional, you will already know that it is super important to enhance your good name and that of your business. Well, if you have other women on your side, they will be able to get behind you and improve your reputation even further.
No More Mansplaining
Have you ever been in a meeting and had to sit for ages while a man explained your own job to you? Or maybe a man has tried to explain a topic or a subject that you are an expert in? If so, then you have been the victim of mansplaining. This can be extremely patronizing and annoying, and it is hugely disrespectful to you. Well, if you join forces with another woman rather than a man, you don’t ever have to worry about it happening to you in a professional setting again. However, you might have to watch out for it in social settings!
There are lots of reasons why women are now teaming up in professional situations, but the ones mentioned above are certainly some of the main reasons why that is. So, do you think it’s time that you and friend set up your own company together? As you can see, it could be very much worth it indeed!
