Globally, women constitute about 50% of the population, while in some countries—for example, South Africa, Japan, Russia, Canada, Argentina, Kazakhstan, Mozambique, Namibia and Nepal—they count for just over 50% (World Bank 2015). At the same time, women now make up 40% of the labor force. These two variables are significant in and of themselves and make this citizenry highly relevant politically, economically and socially. Regarding business, not only do women comprise half of the consumer market, they also make up not much under half of the constituency that labor is drawn from. Concomitantly, gender equality remains an unrealized aspiration for almost half the world population.
