Yours *TrulyJuly*

I do everything content.

The female figure with her wonderful well-rounded curves was the inspiration for this painting of mine:

To me this sums up perfectly what is wrong with gender equality in the business world:

 

For supporting women to do business, networks for “women entrepreneurs” or “female entrepreneurs” are being formed.

 

“Entrepreneur” is a French word and means “businessman”.

So a female entrepreneur is a female businessman, or a female male enterpriser.

 

How about we don’t try to do it the male way, but stay true to our womanhood? What could we possibly improve if we oppress ourselves into the oppressor role just to get ahead in our career or enterprise? Female qualities are much more helpful in the workplace. Luckily it looks like the days of patriarchy and masculine business models are coming to an end.

 

So instead of forcing our femaleness into the male practice and become a female businessman, how about we turn the word into a female version?

 

The French language has by default a male and a female version and the female form of “entrepreneur” is: Entrepreneuse

 

So let’s carry it with the grandeur and pizzazz it suggests and do business in a more feminine way. And not because we are feminists, but because feminity is underrepresented in our current business landscape, and we need to strive for more balanced leadership.
