Diversification, the presence of both genders, not only in my world of books but in every aspects of life, art, business family, friendship is the right combination to meet the objectives, achieve success and realize dreams. A book published in the best way possible needs to be cured by a woman, needs the mind of a woman, a woman eye for details, the hands of a woman. Today, based on global statistics more than 60% of the work done in a publishing house from the copyright, translation, designing is performed by women, so you understand how crucial the presence of a woman is- says Mrs. Dudaj.
