Fiverr's Peggy de Lange: Women belong at all tables where decisions are made Featured


A week after International Women's Day, and as rallies to support injustices against women are happening in Australia's capital cities, iTWire is publishing Peggy de Lange's longer op-ed on IWD2021 as a reminder to all.

Peggy de Lange is Fiverr's VP of International Expansion, and on March 8 last week, International Women's Day, 2021, we published commentary from a dozen incredible women leaders from across the world of tech in an article titled "Celebrating female leaders and entrepreneurs in the tech world on #IWD2021", which included an abridged version of what Peggy has shared below today.

We also published commentary from the inspirational 2020 Businesswoman of the Year, Kate Toon, and also from Danielle Dobson, another amazing woman of the many we featured, who explains in her book and business coaching "How to break the Gender Code". 

Peggy de Lange also submitted a longer op-ed which we meant to publish last week, but given today is one week since IWD2021 took place, and given there are the "March 4 Justice" marches in support of women happening across Australia today, it felt right to publish this article today.

So, what does Peggy de Lange, the Vice President of International Expansion at Fiverr have to say?

Here are Peggy de Lange's words in full:

"The celebration of International Women's day is something I feel extremely proud to be a part of.

"Historically, women have been expected to take a back seat when it comes to being a part of making change in the world, but this day is a reminder that women belong at all tables where decisions are made. Women across the world have dedicated themselves to driving change for equal rights, freedom, and access to opportunities for many decades - and that is something worth celebrating.

"I believe there is a very bright future ahead for women in leadership. As long as we continue to unite and maintain a collective voice, there will proceed to be strides taken in the right direction for women across the globe. I have so many female leaders around me that continue to inspire me and make me feel so lucky to be where I am today.

"I feel extremely blessed to have so many female friends in my life that I look up to as thriving, successful female leaders as they are on the forefront of keeping the world a better and safer place for all women.

"The topic of International Women’s Day is one that I am very passionate about and is very close to my heart for so many reasons. For me, this day is a reminder of the work that generations of women have done in order to get where we are today in the space of women in leadership. I am so proud of the goals that female leaders across the globe achieve everyday which continue to inspire and pave the way for future leaders.

"Women in leadership globally have proved to be vital catalysts for change within businesses in all sectors. Whether it’s building relationships, strategic communication, driving results or being skillful in dispute resolution, women have proven themselves to be extraordinarily effective.

For women, this day is not only one for celebration and recognition for all that women have achieved towards gender equality and women’s rights. It is also a day of acknowledgement for how much further we have to go in the space of not only achieving equality, but a deeper respect for human rights and the right for all women to have control over their lives.

"It is also important to note that in the pursuit for gender equality, the responsibility often lands on the shoulders of women to improve access to health, economic and educational opportunities. In reality, the inequalities that are present between men and women are often caused by an uneven power dynamic, which in order to dismantle and see a change in behaviour, would require engaging the efforts of men and boys.

"Regardless of the encouragement we give to women to demand change, these efforts are futile without the participation of men enforcing a deliberate change in behaviour.

"It is the responsibility of all parties involved to work together in challenging the prejudice towards women in leadership roles. After all, the collaboration of people of all genders working to change the balance of inequality is what International Women’s Day is all about."
