This step represents MasterCard’s latest initiative to celebrate the role of women in society and open the doors of opportunities for them as part of the company’s commitment to building a more equitable and just society.
That can be seen in the book, as it underlines the pioneering role of women in shaping our world, to be a source of inspiration for its readers to take effective steps in their lives and societies to bridge the gender gap and build a more inclusive future in which equal treatment and work prevail.
The book is available as of March 14, 2023, and can be found online, in libraries, universities, schools, and on BooksArabia.com.
