    Conheça as 16 mulheres de sucesso escolhidas pela Forbes em 2024

    The list compiles influential women who excel in their respective fields and foster female leadership in various fields.

    Almost ten years ago, in its inaugural edition, Forbes praised the influence of Brazilian women, warning, however, of the striking contrast in the representation of female leaders. Although there were initial signs of progress, subsequent data revealed a setback: the 2017 World Economic Forum Gender Inequality Report revealed Brazil’s fall from 79th to 90th position.

    We remained orbiting this vexatious level until, in the 2023 report, we rose to 57th position among 146 countries evaluated. Created in 2006, the Global Gender Inequality Index annually assesses gender equality in aspects such as economic participation, educational success, health and political empowerment.

    Celebrate progress? Absolutely. But do we accommodate ourselves? No way. The World Economic Forum predicts it will take 130 years to eradicate global gender inequality! Among the 16 honorees in this edition, many share the extra obstacles they encounter in their careers simply because they are not men.
