    I think that this is an exciting step forward. Women are underrepresented in so many different fields. Media, politics/government positions, science and technology fields, etc. Giving women a platform, such as your podcast, is crucial in breaking traditional stereotypes and making a true difference in how women are represented. So many studies have shown the impact that places where women are educated and given equal rights are generally healthier, stable, and more successful than places where women are treated as second-class citizens. By including women, giving them a voice, and ensuring that they are well represented in all fields is necessary for an effective society.

    Thank you, Lauren. I really appreciate your comment. My team has been working hard to highlight many great, accomplished women through my show, Women Worldwide. I truly believe that giving women a voice and a platform (especially through media) will help to change how we’re represented across industries and different societies. Unfortunately, the number of women in media is down and this is something that we must work toward changing quickly. The more our voices are amplified through the media, the greater the representation will be. Of course, at the same time, it’s refreshing to know that every voice has the potential to help, educate or motivate someone else. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts!
