He articulated his massage in a clear-cut manner. He said investing in women is not only the right thing to do but also the smart thing to do.
No one can dispute the necessity of empowering women and what it means to invest on women for the well being of our world. Investing on women would indisputably solve many intricate problems of our world.
However providing the general guide line may not be enough to achieve the intended goal. All agreeable and appealing ideas and principles may not give the intended result; some times even it may negate the whole principle it was pillared by.
Therefore every general principle needs to be clearly elaborated to make the best out of it. In the same token the general principle that investing on women is a smart thing to do needs further explanation to give it practical application. Investing is an art therefore it needs to be well planned and well versed measures taken in each step.
