Women are being increasingly represented in the business world and the global discussion on gender equality is raging fiercely right now. But in a century where we have seen women given the vote and the right to work despite marriage and children, we still do not see women being paid equally and we still do not see any serious numbers of women at the top.
So are we seeing genuine change happening? Will the changes be sustainable? And what does it mean for men? Will they be banished to the kitchen?
