If you’ve read a reputable geopolitical magazine like The Economist in the last forty years, you’ll have read a lot of articles about the “Rise of something“.
The rise of Japan.The rise of China.
The rise of the Internet.
The rise of Ford. The rise of GM.
The rise of Apple, Facebook or Amazon.
The rise of HBO. The rise of Netflix.
The rise of Politician A. The rise of Politician B.
All of these are really interesting rises. And yet, if you study your history and the actual lives of real people in real places, there’s a rise that dwarfs them all.
And that is the rise of women in both business and political life.
That is the really big rise, the really big story and the one really worth telling, not just on International Women’s Day.
