“We are truly witnessing a revolution of women in many areas, including entrepreneurship, innovation, and overall leadership. As many know, women hold 80% of the nation’s buying power across the country, but fewer are aware that women owned businesses have grown by 44% over the past ten years,” says Lindsey Mask, Founder of Ladies DC/Ladies America.
