In this section, we showcase examples of women who stand out because they have developed themselves professionally or they have created a business in sectors mainly controlled by men. They are “mirrors” of female politicians, farmers, engineers, etc… Reading these stories, we can find women who went against the norm and stood out because of their knowledge and skills, achieving great changes until they reached higher positions, traditionally reserved for men. These women tell us about how they had to make a bigger effort than other coworkers just because of their gender or how their professional merits weren’t always acknowledged. These stories aim to transmit the idea of the fact that if other women could, we can as well. We need to be able to bury stereotypes and offer a different perspective on specific professions or economic sectors.
