Today a woman is free to build up her own mode of existence, disburden herself from the old stereotypes that have always been the obstacles for her self-improvement. Now, in the epoch of Internet and globalization Ukrainian women, like millions of women in other countries, are doing their best to be heard and understood in all corners of the Universe. Never again want they to be limited with dish-washing and household activities; from now on their “kitchen” and “house” is the whole Universe… And they have to find the key from this Universe and enter it without hurting the feelings and interests of their own families or the beloved ones.
So, women in Ukraine are engaged in different activities. They are not afraid of innovations and risks due to their incredible desire to achieve their goals and to become self-sufficient.
Ukrainian women possess high level of intellect, rational thinking, professional skills with their female cooperative management style to be of crucial importance for the successful restructuring of the business-companies. The majority of Ukrainian ladies maintain that only the work they haven’t been involved into can not be done by them. Fantastic self-reliance, optimism and persistent work add up to the success formula in business and life of the Ukrainians. At that, they are not only the users of economic development merits of today but also the direct creators of progress and stability in the Ukrainian society owing to their unique experience, knowledge and skills.
It should be mentioned that the majority of Ukrainian businesswomen have got higher education (73%) and before embarking on their own businesses more than 70% of women had been the public-sector workers or those engaged in private-sector activities (23%). Half of the women have experience from the previous place of work, yet it is nothing but entrepreneurial business that is of key importance in the alteration of attitude towards a woman in our society.
First of all, a woman has to feel the freedom of choice for self-realization in the way she dreams. Ukrainian women succeeded in their tiresome race to get the equal rights alongside with the men in their painstaking effort to make our world kinder and better.
