Unconscious gender biases are present everywhere, from high-level functions in government, political parties, STEM careers, the film industry, the media, advertising, global conferences, and even children’s toys. The impact of such biases holds women back in many ways.
It also affects the vision and expectations from men and women in society: while men should be “driven” and “result oriented”, women must be “nurturing” and “inclusive”.
