Joint women’s initiatives in the economy, science, culture, and charity are on the rise. Women’s role in trade and economic relations is expanding. Support for progressive ideas that are being implemented with the active involvement of women provides an impetus for the development of interesting areas in technology and the opening of new markets, and is a motivating factor for numerous start-up entrepreneurs.
