Celebrating the Contributions of Women Entrepreneurs Worldwide

Let’s begin by highlighting very strong remarks at a breakfast with women entrepreneurs attending the Presidential Summit on Entrepreneurship by our very own U.S. Secretary of State Clinton (pictured):

“… women are doers and achievers and thinkers and innovators, leaders, and problem-solvers. And we need each and every one of you to lend your entrepreneurial skill and energy to meeting the global challenges of this new century.”

Need we say more?

President Obama is committed to promoting and strengthening entrepreneurship to help foster conditions for broader and deeper economic progress. And this week’s summit focused efforts in Muslim majority countries.

Quick snapshot of facts relevant to women:

We all know the facts. Women still do two-thirds of the work in the world but only earn five percent of the income. They harvest 90 percent of the world’s food, yet they own only one percent of the world’s land. And women are three times as likely as men to work in informal economies. And therefore abuse and sex trafficking, and the absence of legal rights and protections for women are still unacceptably commonplace in so many places around the world. We must do more and we must do more with greater urgency to empower women. And we believe that a focus on scalable innovation can and will make a difference.
