But we all can do something about this and men can do something too. Men can refuse to speak on panels where there are no women. This would at least be a start. It may seem like a small thing but it would mean that greater efforts would be made to ensure that women are given a loud voice and can encourage other women to join them.
Gucci, GUESS, Zara - what do they all have in common? They all recently launched their own gender-neutral clothing brands. But it isn't just a mere fashion statement - gender-free clothing works in harmony with our own individual lifestyles. As the CEO of GFW Clothing, making sure things are inclusive for everyone is at the very core of my work, values and ethics.
The term 'activist' should really be stripped of its obnoxious (and in many cases unfair) connotations and begin to be understood exactly as what it really means: acting resolutely in accordance with ones most dearly held principles. The crowds that have been marching in unity throughout the world show that this process is already under way and I urge every one of us to raise their banner alongside them in solidarity.
Specialist women's centres are a vital resource for women often when they are at their most vulnerable and most in need of support. It is possible to realise lasting positive change for the thousands of women experiencing multiple disadvantage. But that can only happen if the existing organisations, those already providing holistic women-centred services, are able to survive.
Moana is one of the many great kids' movies that have been released in recent months - a film about an adventurous young girl who sets out on a daring mission to save her people. As is customary these days, the animation is incredible, the script is sharp and funny and there are strong moral messages. But the main thing I came away with is that girl power is alive and well.
It's about honouring my mother and the struggles she went through to give us a better life. And it's about representing my female Asian community because, as silly as it sounds, you won't know you can do something until you see someone like you doing it. It's so when my niece grows up, she won't hesitate to lace her boots up and march because she's already seen me do it.
Am I working hard enough at encouraging the many talented women below me to succeed in the very top jobs? The truth is not. It's partly because I am reluctant to bang the feminist drum in a company which is incredibly egalitarian. Somehow focusing on women seems unfair on the talented young men we have in the company.
As a society, we have always learnt to accept trade-offs when it comes to equality - not necessarily by our own doing but by never challenging the status quo, passed down through generations. Women's equality is perhaps the greatest example of this in the UK, but it's something we are beginning to finally challenge.
Why is The Equality Trust supporting the Women's March on London? Well that's a no-brainer if you know your economics. We may have a female prime minister, but we still have a gender pay gap. Many women's refuges are being lost and young women and girls are suffering sexism in school corridors. None of this is conducive to equality or being economically brutal, female productivity.
By rewriting the Hollywood musical, Chazelle has given us an alternative ending - one that does justice to the female character, and feels a lot less like 'La La Land' and a lot more like real life. Not sewn into a leather catsuit. Not half-naked. Not airbrushed. It's a 2016 musical that 1950s leading ladies would be proud of.
The real problem is that we feel bad when we feel unhappy, we feel the need to hide our sadness because being positive is the in thing. As the adults perhaps we need to lead the way forward here, show young girls that feeling sad is not a bad thing, misery comes and goes and you don't have to smile at anyone if you don't want to.
