ROHNERT PARK, CA, February 03, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The problem today is we need economic empowerment for women. To support and inspire women to succeed in their businesses and careers, we are having International Women's Day, which commemorates the rights of women.
Debra Shine, event co-sponsor, says, "Women owned businesses, mentorship of young women, equalizing the pay gap and removing the glass ceiling for women in their careers are ways to create Economic Empowerment for Women."
