Bergamann said: ‘Since I know myself, since I was 13, I have been working and earning my life. I have struggled with men throughout my professional life. And all the struggle I had, created who I am today. I never thought I lost, therefore I learned or earned from this experience. I would like to thank all the men who gave me the chance to fight and put me in my strong position today. As a result of this struggle, I am very proud to be at the World Economic Forum today. Today we are talking about gender equality, for this we need leadership and role models. When we look at the countries in the world today, the number of countries managed by female leaders is below 10 percent. I believe that our world will be more livable and peaceful with the rise of female leaders under the dominance of world male leaders. I dream of seeing more women leaders in the countries in the future. Today and in the coming years, we should not talk about gender equality, but equality of individuals. "
