Why Women Make The Best Supporters Of Other Women In Business

Every year, The Singapore Women’s Weekly shines the spotlight on 18 outstanding, powerful and high-achieving career women in the Great Women Of Our Time awards. Meet Health, Sports & Wellness nominee, Vanessa Paranjothy, Co-Founder of Freedom Cups:

“My personal aim is to leave my little corner of the globe in a better state than when I was in it,” says Vanessa, who co-founded Freedom Cups with her sisters.

I think if the menstrual cup becomes the de facto way that women deal with periods by the end of my life, I’d consider it a life well lived. I would be perfectly happy because these menstrual cups have such an impact for women, and not just for our bodies or our wallets – but for the planet too. The Earth is dying, and if everyone would chip in, that would help!”

We ask the co-found of this social enteprise to share why she thinks women make great leaders with our soft skills:
