Considering it's Women's History Month, we figured we revisit some iconic moments in history, geared towards the empowerment of women. Case and point: the Women's March in Washington, D.C. Since it's inception in 2017, thousands of women united every year to participate in the largest protest in U.S. history. I've participated in every Women's March since the first, with the exception of this year's being cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and it's difficult to believe four years has passed since its origination.


So much has changed since the first Women's March. Back then, we were marching to protest the inauguration of a xenophobic president, mourning the presidential loss of Hillary Clinton. There was so much uncertainty and fear lingering in the air at the time. Flash forward four years, and that president has been voted out, welcoming a new generation that includes America's first Black, female Vice President of South Asian decent.

So I guess our marching paid off after all.

As we celebrate the anniversary of the first Women's March, let's take a look at some of some incredible moments from marches past.

Can tech help female entrepreneurs break the bias?

Women founders continue to come up against common challenges and biases - solving this problem is bigger than supporting women, it’s about supporting the national economy.

Starting a business may have historically been perceived as a man’s game, but this couldn’t be further from reality. Research shows women are actually more likely than men to actively choose to start their own business – often motivated by the desire to be their own boss or to have a better work-life balance and spend more time with their family.

How am I doing as a parent?

Evaluating yourself is hard. It's even harder when attempting to assess your parenting because there's no set guide and nothing to count, measure, or quantify.

How am I doing as a parent?

Some time ago, I met my lovely friend for a drink, straight off the train from London. She told me about a very intense performance review she had at work recently, which, although scary, was incredibly useful; it gave her a general sense of how she was doing and areas to work on.

And it struck me we don't get this feedback as parents. Am I doing a good job? I have no idea.
