About Women LEAD

Women LEAD’s vision is for women and girls to take key leadership positions alongside men.

Offline, we work to empower young women in Nepal, but online we would like to build a movement to empower and connect young women leaders around the world. In this blog, we wish to highlight young women leaders around the world, as well as provide updates on our organization and a weekly round-up of news on global women’s leadership, especially in Asia.

  1. Good initiative with young girls in Nepal. Congratulation! In your mission you have written ‘Women LEAD’s vision is for women and girls to take key leadership positions alongside men’. Are you comparing men and women and thus want women to move ‘alongside’ men?? This isn’t a gender sensitive approach and neither does include the idea of equity (just a personal perception though).

    1. Hi Shubha,

      Thanks for your comment. We’re saying we think women should work with men to achieve change, and that we think women should have equal access to leadership. We’re not saying we think men and women are exactly the same.
