When Brigham Young said ‘You educate a man, you educate a man, You educate a woman, you educate a generation’ he couldn’t have been more right! Gone are the days when all that being a woman meant was giving birth, nurturing children, taking care of the household and living life for others! The world has evolved and so has the status of women in society – it is a different league altogether, where the fairer sex is not just raising kids and looking after the house but transforming the world by her decisions and deeds. Extraordinary entrepreneurs, billionaire activists, visionary CEOs and pioneering philanthropists – women today are all of these and much more. And it is to these incredible souls that we dedicate this section. A global power, America has been home to some of the most powerful businesswomen in the world, be it as IBM CEO Virginia ‘Ginny’ Rometty or Kraft CEO Irene Rosenfeld, Facebook board of directors Sherly Sandberg or Disney Media Networks co-chairman Anne Sweeney, CFDA’s president and fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg or Sony Pictures Entertainment’s co-chairman Amy Pascal. Incredibly mindboggling, isn’t it? But this is just a side of the coin! With their avant-garde thinking, revolutionary policies and ground-breaking administrative skills, women today are equating men, on all grounds of business. Know more about the life and works of some of the exceptionally talented American business women.
