Cherie Blair (pictured) has it right. She’s developed the Cherie Blair Foundation (2008) to help women build small and growing businesses in developing and emerging markets so that they can contribute to their economies and have a stronger voice in their societies.
The Foundation’s vision is:
A world where women have equal opportunities and the capability, confidence and capital necessary to establish and grow businesses, resulting in a brighter future for the women themselves and their communities as a whole.
