According to Fast Company, one email can have a huge impact. At least that’s the case for Rachel Sklar, a writer who is described as the “poster-woman for gender equality.”

It all started in 2010, when she noticed that a story in New York magazine about entrepreneurs mostly featured men. This prompted her to send an email to 20 women to state that she planned to start making sure women were better represented. She came up with the hashtag #changetheratio, and it all took off from there. And that’s how the startup TheLi.st was born.
