This year’s theme for international women’s day was “Invest in women: accelerate progress”. This got journalist Nehaa Bimal wondering about women in the business world.

The good news: she found out there are more women entrepreneurs in Canada than ever before. The less good news: as she tells us in this story, that doesn’t mean there aren’t still barriers to overcome.
