The role of chefs has changed drastically over time, with the food world closely following. Chefs used to be background people. Customers would go to a fancy restaurant and have no idea who was cooking their food. That is not the case anymore. People now go to eat at restaurants that were written up for having an incredible chef. Today chefs' jobs usually go beyond the kitchen and into the public eye. Most influential chefs have starred on cooking shows, published books, and are social media stars and philanthropists.
Why must women go out and fight for rights and opportunities that are just handed to men? The freedoms that women are given depend on how female-friendly their country is. As times become more progressive, many countries seem to be narrowing the gender gap by reforming policies in order to create a society that is more inclusive of women. It is vital to the continuance of spreading feminism around the world. The global gender gap report measures gender equality using four main principles: economic participation, educational attainment, health and survival, and political empowerment. Nordic countries seemed to have figured out that, in order to have a thriving and stable economy, women and men must have equal rights. In contrast, women in countries like Saudi Arabia are discriminated against, and have minimal basic rights, having just gained the right to drive. Even in female-friendly countries where women have made significant progress, there is still much work to be done in order to completely close the gender gap.
