A few weeks ago, a campaign was launched: #Nomorematildas. The objective of this campaign is to bring to textbooks women scientists who have contributed key findings to the Society. Avoid women prejudice in society.
Why? Well, to get them to awaken the scientific vocation of all those girls who, until today, have been made to think that science is a man’s thing. Clear example of, women prejudice in society.
The campaign is good, the video is good and for many days we saw how this video was broadcast on Social Networks, especially Linkedin.
An element that emerges in this campaign. In my opinion, is key in the fight for equality: visibility.
Visibility and Marketing.
In Marketing, many times, what we want to achieve with a Marketing campaign is awareness. As the target audience takes us into account when buying.
So can you imagine what happens to everything that “is not noticeable” or “Visible”? Exactly. It seems that it does not exist. Visibility in the professional world allows us to develop business. Also, develop projects or improve our personal brand among many other things.
Although it is true that from the outset all people have the same opportunities to generate visibility, the reality is different: women have less visibility in the business world. Because it happens? The topic would give us to create a blog in itself.
Be that as it may, this lack of visibility also has consequences in the business world and as they point out in the #nomorematildas campaign, in society we do not have to pay this costs.

The snake biting its own tail, the Matilda and women prejudice in society
In the #Nomorematildas campaign they denounce that by not talking about female referents in scientific fields, there are fewer women in these fields and therefore fewer opportunities are generated. A prejudice is also generated, that women are not scientists and therefore many girls discard this option when they are very young.
So why is this going to be any different in the corporate world? The fact that women have less visibility creates fewer opportunities for them and even creates an unfair prejudice that women have less potential in the business world.
And so, with everything that has to do with women prejudice in society.
The truth is that everyone has prejudices and you must analyze which ones are yours. In this way you will be able to discover people and potentials that your prejudices would not let you discover.
Are you going to stop seeing part of the world because of them?
