<p><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">I know, I know&hellip;the world isn&rsquo;t fair sometimes. Whether if it&rsquo;s about Human Rights, Education or some women issues. </span><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Although more women nowadays are embracing entrepreneurship and male related fields, such as Tech, they often face challenges not typically shared by their male counterparts.</span></p>

<ol>

<li><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Balancing between work and family</span></li>

</ol>

<p><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Being a full-time parent while working at the same time can be a great struggle to deal with. Some people <span style="color:black">still have the traditional mentality that mothers are responsible for doing the house chores and buying the groceries, which can be very taxing. Having to wake up early to prepare breakfast, working for the whole day then rushing home to prepare dinner for the family. On top of it all, there&rsquo;s still laundry and house cleanliness to manage. It&rsquo;s mentally and physically exhausting having to juggle all the responsibilities with deadlines to meet at home and work.&nbsp; </span></span></p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>

<ol start="2">

<li><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Pay Gaps</span></li>

</ol>

<p><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">The gender gap in pay has narrowed since 1980, particularly among younger female workers, but it still persists. In 2015, women earned 83% of what men earned, according to a </span><a href="http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2013/12/11/how-pew-research-measured-the-gender-pay-gap/"><i><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Pew Research Center analysis</span></i></a><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;"> in hourly earnings of both full- and part-time U.S. workers. </span></p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>

<ol start="3">

<li><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Gender Preference in Work Field</span></li>

</ol>

<p><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Women&rsquo;s power are often underestimated, because majority of the working world&rsquo;s business leaders and companies are still dominated by men, even though they have similar work experience. One example provided by the <i><u><span style="color:#2e74b5">National Center for Education</span></u></i> Statistics shows that women often have to work three years longer in a teaching position to be promoted to a principal than their male counterparts.</span></p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>

<ol start="4">

<li><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Sexual Harassment</span></li>

</ol>

<p><i><u><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;"><span style="color:#2e74b5">Cosmopolitan</span></span></u></i><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;"> surveyed 2,235 female employees, and found that one in three women has experienced sexual harassment at the work environment, even at school. </span><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Oprah Winfrey was one of the women who has conquered the discrimination in Television Hosting. Even though she was fired from her first hosting job caused by gender discrimination, she had pulled it through up until now.</span></p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>

<p><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">The key to overcome the list above is to always think positive and to <span style="color:black">think beyond the gender stereotypes. </span>Like many other female role models, be confident in yourself and believe that you have the capability to excel. </span><strong><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Focus on your work, not your gender</span></strong><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">. </span></p>
