Introduction
__________

What is necessary to build a society where the next generation of women can shine even more?

In the global society, it is widely known by many women recognize that women are not treated equally than men. In order to support girls and women who are already active and want to be active in society with dreams and goals, it is essential to improve the systems of gender equality in both private and public sectors as well as the social stereotyping ideas in many countries that men work while women stay home as housewives and look after children. Why not opposite?

In the first place, men and women are born physiologically differently. Generally speaking, the personalities and the way of thinking of men and women are fundamentally different. With a fundamental understanding of the difference in men and women, there is a need to implement gender-equal society where both men and women can freely engage in housework, parenting and work without social prejudice.

In order for women to be able to demonstrate leadership equally in all fields, it is necessary to face various challenges. In order for a woman to follow her dream and play an active role in society, it is even more necessary to create an equal society and empower women so that they can start a company and fully demonstrate their leadership while doing housework and raising children.
