Women Can Also Be Oligarchs
It happened that men have always been considered the main workers in the family. They were the ones who earned money for taking care of their family, and the main women’s task was housekeeping. Modern society does not agree with this trend, women are demanding equal rights with men in leadership positions in government, taking men’s job positions and even joining the ranks of the army.
Today the “weak half of humanity” can support themselves on their own and even do more than that. Women began earning quite a lot of money and no wonder that now there are some people with million or even billion fortunes.
Most recently, Approved Index Company became interested in the topic and conducted a study to determine where women who were able to overcome the stereotype that only men can be rich reside. The researchers analyzed the data concerning 70 countries and learned about 1,800 wealthy people. Thus, they found out that the only country with more women than men billionaires is Angola.
