IT’S NOT NEWS to anyone that there are more men than women in positions of power and working in politics all across the world.

There are continued calls for greater gender equality in world institutions and for a focus on encouraging more women into these kinds of powerful jobs.

It also shows what University Challenge might look like if there were no male contestants and let’s just say the show probably wouldn’t still be going today.

Elle said “there is more room for us at the top”, adding that one woman’s success “makes every woman stronger”.
