Quote of the week “It’s important for women to understand that this gap in opportunities is not a personal issue, it’s a structural issue, and you need to make changes at a structural level. For that you need to show force, and so creating networks will help a lot. Also, try to bring aboard a lot of men who can really understand the importance of a better world for both women and men.”
