Well educated women are the need of our society. Women have been as much contributing to the development of the country as their counterparts. Though there are still some areas that are the best example of the underrepresentation of women. These areas are business, workplace, and study fields such as STEM that is considered to be male dominant. Women’s Forum of New York supports the education of women and that is why it has brought an amazing scholarship for 2022. This fund will benefit high-potential women, age 35 and over, whose education and lives have been disrupted by extreme adversity.
