There is no better time than right now to be a woman! Feminism and “women supporting women” are at all-time high, and more women are flaunting their intelligent chops across all industries. For example, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is among only four female justices appointed on the Supreme Court. Tavi Gevinson is making waves as a magazine editor, writer and actress as a teenager and Ali Webb, founder of Drybar, focused on a simple idea and created a multi-million-dollar empire.Women have a significant presence these days and their talents reach far beyond business and politics.
