According to the world sex ratio by the WHO, we have 100 females for every 105 males. In spite of making up for almost half of the population of the world, the contribution of women is disturbingly low on platforms where it matters. Cultural and societal restrictions, health limitations and lack of education are just some of the factors that can be blamed for such a skewed scenario. Thankfully in the last few years, there has been a considerable increase in the percentage of women in workplaces and even in many career choices which were considered off-limits for women.
