Why we have too few women leaders | Sheryl Sandberg

Why we have too few women leaders | Sheryl Sandberg


So for any of us in this room today,
let’s start out by admitting we’re lucky.
We don’t live in the world
our mothers lived in,
our grandmothers lived in,
where career choices
for women were so limited.
And if you’re in this room today,
most of us grew up in a world
where we have basic civil rights,
and amazingly, we still live in a world
where some women don’t have them.
But all that aside,
we still have a problem,
and it’s a real problem.
And the problem is this:
Women are not making it
to the top of any profession
anywhere in the world.
The numbers tell the story quite clearly.
190 heads of state —
nine are women.
Of all the people
in parliament in the world,
13 percent are women.
In the corporate sector, women at the top,
C-level jobs, board seats —
tops out at 15, 16 percent.
The numbers have not moved since 2002
and are going in the wrong direction.
And even in the non-profit world,
a world we sometimes think of
as being led by more women,
women at the top: 20 percent.
We also have another problem,
which is that women face harder choices
between professional success
and personal fulfillment.
A recent study in the U.S.
showed that, of married senior managers,
two-thirds of the married men had children
and only one-third
of the married women had children.
A couple of years ago, I was in New York,
and I was pitching a deal,
and I was in one of those fancy
New York private equity offices
you can picture.
And I’m in the meeting —
it’s about a three-hour meeting —
and two hours in,
there needs to be that bio break,
and everyone stands up,
and the partner running the meeting
starts looking really embarrassed.
And I realized he doesn’t know
where the women’s room is in his office.
So I start looking
around for moving boxes,
figuring they just moved in,
but I don’t see any.
And so I said, “Did you just
move into this office?”
And he said, “No,
we’ve been here about a year.”
And I said, “Are you telling me
that I am the only woman
to have pitched a deal
in this office in a year?”
And he looked at me, and he said,
“Yeah. Or maybe you’re the only one
who had to go to the bathroom.”
(Laughter)
So the question is,
how are we going to fix this?
How do we change these numbers at the top?
How do we make this different?
I want to start out by saying,
I talk about this —
about keeping women in the workforce —
because I really think that’s the answer.
In the high-income part of our workforce,
in the people who end up at the top —
Fortune 500 CEO jobs,
or the equivalent in other industries —
the problem, I am convinced,
is that women are dropping out.
Now people talk about this a lot,
and they talk about things
like flextime and mentoring
and programs companies
should have to train women.
I want to talk about none of that today,
even though that’s all really important.
Today I want to focus
on what we can do as individuals.
What are the messages
we need to tell ourselves?
What are the messages we tell
the women that work with and for us?
What are the messages
we tell our daughters?
Now, at the outset,
I want to be very clear
that this speech comes with no judgments.
I don’t have the right answer.
I don’t even have it for myself.
I left San Francisco,
where I live, on Monday,
and I was getting on the plane
for this conference.
And my daughter, who’s three,
when I dropped her off at preschool,
did that whole hugging-the-leg, crying,
“Mommy, don’t get on the plane” thing.
This is hard. I feel guilty sometimes.
I know no women,
whether they’re at home
or whether they’re in the workforce,
who don’t feel that sometimes.
So I’m not saying
that staying in the workforce
is the right thing for everyone.
My talk today is about
what the messages are
if you do want to stay in the workforce,
and I think there are three.
One, sit at the table.
Two, make your partner a real partner.
And three, don’t leave before you leave.
Number one: sit at the table.
Just a couple weeks ago at Facebook,
we hosted a very senior
government official,
and he came in to meet with senior execs
from around Silicon Valley.
And everyone kind of sat at the table.
He had these two women
who were traveling with him
pretty senior in his department,
and I kind of said to them,
“Sit at the table.
Come on, sit at the table,”
and they sat on the side of the room.
When I was in college, my senior year,
I took a course called
European Intellectual History.
Don’t you love that kind
of thing from college?
I wish I could do that now.
And I took it with my roommate, Carrie,
who was then a brilliant
literary student —
and went on to be a brilliant
literary scholar —
and my brother — smart guy,
but a water-polo-playing pre-med,
who was a sophomore.
The three of us take this class together.
And then Carrie reads all the books
in the original Greek and Latin,
goes to all the lectures.
I read all the books in English
and go to most of the lectures.
My brother is kind of busy.
He reads one book of 12
and goes to a couple of lectures,
marches himself up to our room
a couple days before the exam
to get himself tutored.
The three of us go to the exam
together, and we sit down.
And we sit there for three hours —
and our little blue notebooks
— yes, I’m that old.
We walk out, we look at each other,
and we say, “How did you do?”
And Carrie says, “Boy, I feel like
I didn’t really draw out the main point
on the Hegelian dialectic.”
And I say, “God, I really
wish I had really connected
John Locke’s theory of property
with the philosophers that follow.”
And my brother says,
“I got the top grade in the class.”
(Laughter)
“You got the top grade in the class?
You don’t know anything.”
(Laughter)
The problem with these stories
is that they show what the data shows:
women systematically
underestimate their own abilities.
If you test men and women,
and you ask them questions
on totally objective criteria like GPAs,
men get it wrong slightly high,
and women get it wrong slightly low.
Women do not negotiate
for themselves in the workforce.
A study in the last two years
of people entering
the workforce out of college
showed that 57 percent
of boys entering, or men, I guess,
are negotiating their first salary,
and only seven percent of women.
And most importantly,
men attribute their success to themselves,
and women attribute it
to other external factors.
If you ask men why they did a good job,
they’ll say, “I’m awesome.
Obviously. Why are you even asking?”
If you ask women why they did a good job,
what they’ll say is someone helped them,
they got lucky, they worked really hard.
Why does this matter?
Boy, it matters a lot.
Because no one gets to the corner office
by sitting on the side, not at the table,
and no one gets the promotion
if they don’t think
they deserve their success,
or they don’t even understand
their own success.
I wish the answer were easy.
I wish I could go tell
all the young women I work for,
these fabulous women,
“Believe in yourself
and negotiate for yourself.
Own your own success.”
I wish I could tell that to my daughter.
But it’s not that simple.
Because what the data shows,
above all else, is one thing,
which is that success and likeability
are positively correlated for men
and negatively correlated for women.
And everyone’s nodding,
because we all know this to be true.
There’s a really good study
that shows this really well.
There’s a famous Harvard
Business School study
on a woman named Heidi Roizen.
And she’s an operator
in a company in Silicon Valley,
and she uses her contacts
to become a very successful
venture capitalist.
In 2002 — not so long ago —
a professor who was then
at Columbia University
took that case
and made it [Howard] Roizen.
And he gave the case out, both of them,
to two groups of students.
He changed exactly one word:
“Heidi” to “Howard.”
But that one word made
a really big difference.
He then surveyed the students,
and the good news was the students,
both men and women,
thought Heidi and Howard
were equally competent,
and that’s good.
The bad news was
that everyone liked Howard.
He’s a great guy.
You want to work for him.
You want to spend the day
fishing with him.
But Heidi? Not so sure.
She’s a little out for herself.
She’s a little political.
You’re not sure
you’d want to work for her.
This is the complication.
We have to tell our daughters
and our colleagues,
we have to tell ourselves
to believe we got the A,
to reach for the promotion,
to sit at the table,
and we have to do it in a world
where, for them, there are sacrifices
they will make for that,
even though for their brothers,
there are not.
The saddest thing about all of this
is that it’s really hard to remember this.
And I’m about to tell a story
which is truly embarrassing for me,
but I think important.
I gave this talk at Facebook
not so long ago
to about 100 employees,
and a couple hours later,
there was a young woman who works there
sitting outside my little desk,
and she wanted to talk to me.
I said, okay, and she sat down,
and we talked.
And she said, “I learned something today.
I learned that I need to keep my hand up.”
“What do you mean?”
She said, “You’re giving this talk,
and you said you would take
two more questions.
I had my hand up with many other people,
and you took two more questions.
I put my hand down, and I noticed
all the women did the same,
and then you took more questions,
only from the men.”
And I thought to myself,
“Wow, if it’s me — who cares
about this, obviously —
giving this talk —
and during this talk, I can’t even notice
that the men’s hands are still raised,
and the women’s hands are still raised,
how good are we
as managers of our companies
and our organizations
at seeing that the men
are reaching for opportunities
more than women?”
We’ve got to get women
to sit at the table.
(Cheers)
(Applause)
Message number two:
Make your partner a real partner.
I’ve become convinced that we’ve made
more progress in the workforce
than we have in the home.
The data shows this very clearly.
If a woman and a man
work full-time and have a child,
the woman does twice the amount
of housework the man does,
and the woman does three times
the amount of childcare the man does.
So she’s got three jobs
or two jobs, and he’s got one.
Who do you think drops out
when someone needs to be home more?
The causes of this are really complicated,
and I don’t have time to go into them.
And I don’t think Sunday football-watching
and general laziness is the cause.
I think the cause is more complicated.
I think, as a society,
we put more pressure
on our boys to succeed
than we do on our girls.
I know men that stay home
and work in the home
to support wives with careers,
and it’s hard.
When I go to the Mommy-and-Me stuff
and I see the father there,
I notice that the other mommies
don’t play with him.
And that’s a problem,
because we have to make it
as important a job,
because it’s the hardest job
in the world to work inside the home,
for people of both genders,
if we’re going to even things out and let
women stay in the workforce.
(Applause)
Studies show that households
with equal earning
and equal responsibility
also have half the divorce rate.
And if that wasn’t good enough motivation
for everyone out there,
they also have more —
how shall I say this on this stage?
They know each other more
in the biblical sense as well.
(Cheers)
Message number three:
Don’t leave before you leave.
I think there’s a really deep irony
to the fact that actions
women are taking —
and I see this all the time —
with the objective
of staying in the workforce
actually lead to their eventually leaving.
Here’s what happens:
We’re all busy. Everyone’s busy.
A woman’s busy.
And she starts thinking
about having a child,
and from the moment she starts
thinking about having a child,
she starts thinking
about making room for that child.
“How am I going to fit this
into everything else I’m doing?”
And literally from that moment,
she doesn’t raise her hand anymore,
she doesn’t look for a promotion,
she doesn’t take on the new project,
she doesn’t say, “Me. I want to do that.”
She starts leaning back.
The problem is that —
let’s say she got pregnant
that day, that day —
nine months of pregnancy,
three months of maternity leave,
six months to catch your breath —
Fast-forward two years,
more often — and as I’ve seen it —
women start thinking
about this way earlier —
when they get engaged, or married,
when they start thinking
about having a child,
which can take a long time.
One woman came to see me about this.
She looked a little young.
And I said, “So are you and your husband
thinking about having a baby?”
And she said, “Oh no, I’m not married.”
She didn’t even have a boyfriend.
(Laughter)
I said, “You’re thinking about this
just way too early.”
But the point is that what happens
once you start
kind of quietly leaning back?
Everyone who’s been through this —
and I’m here to tell you,
once you have a child at home,
your job better be really good to go back,
because it’s hard to leave
that kid at home.
Your job needs to be challenging.
It needs to be rewarding.
You need to feel like you’re
making a difference.
And if two years ago
you didn’t take a promotion
and some guy next to you did,
if three years ago you stopped
looking for new opportunities,
you’re going to be bored
because you should have kept
your foot on the gas pedal.
Don’t leave before you leave.
Stay in.
Keep your foot on the gas pedal,
until the very day you need to leave
to take a break for a child —
and then make your decisions.
Don’t make decisions too far in advance,
particularly ones you’re not
even conscious you’re making.
My generation really, sadly,
is not going to change
the numbers at the top.
They’re just not moving.
We are not going to get
to where 50 percent of the population —
in my generation, there will not
be 50 percent of [women]
at the top of any industry.
But I’m hopeful that future
generations can.
I think a world where half
of our countries and our companies
were run by women,
would be a better world.
It’s not just because people would know
where the women’s bathrooms are,
even though that would be very helpful.
I think it would be a better world.
I have two children.
I have a five-year-old son
and a two-year-old daughter.
I want my son to have a choice
to contribute fully
in the workforce or at home,
and I want my daughter
to have the choice to not just succeed,
but to be liked for her accomplishments.
Thank you.
(Applause)

100 thoughts on “Why we have too few women leaders | Sheryl Sandberg

  • "Women have to chose between professional success and personal fullfilment"… If professional success and personal fulfillment are two different things, than you should go for personal fulfillment. The women are therefore on the right path.

  • women should never be allowed in positions of authority in business or politics. Men make better leaders in every single way. It is the men who fight for and build civilizations therefore it is up to the men how we run it. This is how god commands for it to be. BRING BACK THE PATRIARCHY

  • I’m a male with decades of work experience in the corporate world. To be frank, women rarely stack up. It’s come to the point that I calculate the timelines of projects based on how many women are involved. So many have taken on the victim mentality of how they have to break through glass ceilings and lean forward and a dozen other absurd notions. They make more mistakes, take longer to complete simple tasks, whine and feel the need to explain their questions and/or conclusions. Strong women are a rarity and competency and leadership skills are even more rare. That’s the reality

  • I learned something important recently from a staffing organization, men are more likely to still apply for a job not meeting 100% of the qualifications listed (and still get it because they bothered to apply) but women won't. We feel we shouldn't apply for a job because even though we have the degree and three years experience, it says four, so we skip past it. We don't even try because we think we'd be looked over anyway or it would be wrong to "not follow the rules." Men still apply. We need to be more self-assured, like men, because I did that just now, I applied one term short of my B.S. and I got the job AND they're working with my last term of school in the fall. I asked the hiring manager why, he said I have the experience and talent, and I asked why then ask for the list of qualifications and he said, "It weeds out those who don't feel confident in their ability because a confident person applies anyway." I was blown away.

  • Did you guys know sharks attack both men and women in equal proportions? I think we could all learn a thing or two from such noble sea beasts.

  • i wonder if she'd have such easy opportunities if she wasnt a jew….and to think she wasted so much time in the "ban bossy" campaign…..

  • Thanks very much more than this 👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

  • One thing I noticed in the comments section is Women NEVER advocating for Complete separation/Segregation from Men. Why is that???? Why don't women just take up arm's and overthrow the "patriarchy"?

  • If women aren't being discriminated against and yet there seems to be a deficit, then the truth must be that most woman don't care about the same things as men do…their life's fulfillment might lie in other things. And maybe just maybe if the future of humanity lies with women then forcibly changing nature could be dangerous…..my advice let women do and be whatever it is that they want to.

  • Men have sacrificed their family life, their safety(sometimes life) and worked hard to reach the top. If women do the same they will too. Good luck.

  • It’s funny how they want to take all the office jobs, they don’t want the jobs as garbage collectors oil collectors or minors😂

  • Why we have too few women leaders? Because a man doesn't care how much money a woman makes as long as she is hot.

  • Elect More Women? They are caring, social and nonviolent. Great qualities for politicians. Read: www.womenasleaders.world

  • when females focus on the work more than the next generation. the country slowly dies out. Females has there time Clock to follow and than after that its over. Males can get up to 70 befor there bio-Clock goes steril. In japan the population is slowly dieing. Females think about there Carriers since we gave them the opertunty to work like man. If females were compensated for not working and actually paid to be a good wife and mother than the females would never complain about not having the same opertunities as males. They would infact chose to be workless wife with an income from the goverment and prefer to live that way. The countrys with woman that dosent work to earn money when they move to a country with wellfare system they tend to ignore the educational part and go straight for the income. They got tons and tons of kids but no husband to take care of the kids. Somalia woman specialy does this in sweden. If they are compensated for not working and just geting Children. they rather chose the easy money than working and earn money threw jobs.

  • if the World was run by woman, we would still be in our stone age, cuz there is no wisdoom or intrests of constantly improving. female controling the World = World never made a single change = human developing never existed.

  • Me and my husband both are working, if I came 30 mins late from work, my husband comments "she is so irresponsible" but if he is late, I m always worried and feel it would have been tough day for him so I will prepare everything for him and wait…

  • Why would we listen about leadership from senior management of a company like Facebook who is very unethical and would do anything for money?

  • I still remember when I was the topper in my school. My female teacher was teaching about equality between men and women and she proudly said "our school topper is also a female". Never felt so proud of myself.

  • What a amazing woman. She laid out all the points perfectly. I truly hope that the condition improves and in future generations woman contribute to 50% of jobs

  • Studys have ben dun and ask women if they rather have a woman or a man as a boss and 70% of women want a man as a boss. Wat does that tell u about wat kind of job a woman wants

  • Sheryl é uma mulher incrível! Estou lendo o seu livro : Faça acontecer. É nada mais que a pura verdade no mundo todo!

  • Sheryl.. Why don't you think why we have no women in coal mines, military, factories as well.. If you expect equality and equal pay, women should work equally

  • Thank you.
    From the small percentage, the biggest giants arise.
    Just a few examples:
    Richest person in the history of music industry: Madonna
    Most successful/richest TV show host: Oprah
    The person who made China the commercial giant it is today: Wu Zetien

    And they?
    Are all liked and adored.

    They did it. So can you. So will I.
    Question is, do you WANT to be great, or do you want to be mediocre?

  • Women will never be on the same level as men. The intelligence just isn’t there. It’s not a demeanment, It’s just what is.

  • Wow. I HAVE A 5-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter. This message (I felt) was totally for me, as I am a career-woman and mother! Thank you.

  • Here's the other end of the discussion about mothers staying in the workforce…many of us who choose to make family and home our career are criticized, spoken to out about with a patronizing overtone of disrespect, and generally devalued by the current feminist movement.

  • Because women are distracted by make-up, hair, clothes, another women live's and other stuff that doesn't mean anything. Women needs more foccus. Sexist vision of feminine says to women that be a woman is to be weak and submissive, a woman like that will never be a leader. A leader is not submissive and never weak.

  • She says "Women are not making it to the top of any professional anywhere in the world". Uh Walmart is owned by Women. IKEA is run by a woman. Formula One racing is run by a woman. Even playboy magazine is run by a woman. What planet is she on?

  • THANK GOD we have few females in positions of power. Most can't even change a tire on their own frickin' car !! Too many have what psychologists call POOR IMPULSE CONTROL…and can't even discipline their own selves–let alone others. Want proof ?? The fastest growing alcoholic demographic right now is YOUNG WOMEN..In the U.S. up 425% in just the last 5 years. Even if that number was 25% it would be alarming. POOR IMPULSE CONTROL.

  • Here is another article talking about Woman to be the next Uniqlo CEO, check this out if you're interested in.
    https://medium.com/swlh/billionaire-uniqlo-founder-wants-a-woman-to-succeed-him-as-ceo-cc3bb4ec6c75

  • Howard is more likable because a large proportion of women tend to be extremely stuck up, tense, too serious and catty, while a larger proportion of men tend to be easy going, jovial and far more playful. I wonder why we are like this. Honestly us women need to begin representing Heidi in a much better way. Honestly speaking, Heidi is far less likely to crack a goofy joke than Howard is (I honestly hate that the majority of women are like this because women are actually naturally warm people). We can represent ourselves much better and that's my point on the likability side of things. With everything else, men and society need to stop telling women who they must be and who she can be (that's why women are defensive and rigid in the first place).

  • You are right .It is Gender Base Violence on women and girls.We women are not self confident.I have also learnt a lot .Thanks Mum .I will not leave before l leave especially now that l am being push to the walls by my male boss

  • Maybe stop being homophobic, racist, classist, sexist, and as abusive as the same men you claim to be against and then maybe more women will be leaders.

  • Plus, a lot of these female leaders end up being full-time misandrists instead of just doing something to better the condition of the human race. They become just as disgusting/sexist as the men they claim to be against and end up creating SEXIST WARS that end up impacting absolutely everyone regardless of whether they’re sexist or not. The ones who always end up suffering the most are CHILDREN. Beyoncé is a perfect example. Rose McGowan is a perfect example (calling gay men misogynistic). Then they always end up apologising because they know that they’re wrong — they’re fake apologies too… they don’t mean it. REAL MISOGYNISTS DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE WOMEN. THEY FUCKING COVER THEM UP AND CREATE RELIGIONS THAT RESTRICT THEM FROM EXPRESSING THEMSELVES. Gay men collectively don’t do that. Islam infringed upon the rights of gay men. It’s pro-heterosexual male. Now, in FREE COUNTRIES where women are allowed to say/do whatever they want, they end up abusing these freedoms just as much as men do. THEY DO NOT CARE. Leaders SHOULD fucking care. They should be empathetic and not full of their damn selves. A lot of these women are just as full of themselves as male “leaders”.

  • In the majority of instances where I've had a female supervisor (not all, there have been a few positive ones), it's been unpleasant. Cattiness, gossip about other coworkers, walking on eggshells, passive-aggression, competitiveness. I have no issue with women being in leadership positions but then act like a leader and stop behaving in snide catty ways towards other women. Maybe that's why?

  • I have seen many women with weak personality and no financial independence who ended up abandoning their children for getting married other men and seeking better financial lives. They also cannot stand difficulties and easily get mental illnesses. As a result, many of them live selfishly and rely on money much than others. That can be a real mess for marriage and households.

  • Working is necessary because staying at home all days can mess up your mind and make you more and more stupid. Believe me. My mom used to be very clever when she was a CEO of an electric company, but when she retired, she became very… Uhm…. How can I tell?

  • Because naturally women are not leaders. That's it.
    Everyone knows that, but we just act out in pseudo moralistic stance.
    What would happen if you had a female leader in times of wars?
    CHAOS.

  • this isn't about equal opportunity for women-they've HAD that by law for a half century now! It's about marxism , a envy and resentment

    based system of robbing others of what they've earned , such as appointing a woman who works far fewer hours than a man just because of "privilege" that happened 2 centuries ago AND in spite the fact that the company is some man's PROPERTY he built.
    equal opportunity results in unequal outcomes (because we aren't equal in abilities) so the leftists want equal outcomes(communism).

  • Its simple because women make appalling leaders…..most are voted in by other women who want to see women in powerful positions…who then disappear when the reality of how bad women in these positions truly sinks in. Female oppression is a myth…dreamed up by man hating feminists to split the sexes. Women had a part to play in our society…that was nurturing and bringing up the next generation. The games women play now are only possible because our society was built ( by men ) to protect women and their children. We even died for this to happen. Once science was able to provide birth control women were able to get into the workplace. Before then it wasn’t possible. Since men built all this they controlled it. Women have been given the opportunity to join in so to speak….and what have they done?…had laws put in place giving them special privileges….used those laws to displace men from universities and professions that men needed to provide for the families. So they think they can do without men….but they cant. Almost everything they have or use is built and maintained by men, our society is still protected by men…their rights to shout and moan their stupid heads off are protected by men….and they are having less children. So what of them…..consumers…not constructors, what value to society are they now?

  • She herself wearing those uncomfertable high heels to showing something to mens.She herself socially conditioned.She herself even not break any rule i think she is now also slave of man how she gonna be free to women.The women is only who is responsible for her condition i read her book book also she talk about equality of mens and women and that can never be. Why women wants to equal to mens why she follow mens she should not first thing about these questions

  • "She's got three jobs and he's got one" – this is the key issue working women who marry need to reconcile before saying I do!

  • Why does ANYONE want to be a CEO? The traveling alone would kill me. The long hours, stress, competition, no thanks!

    At some point it's a balance between the benefit from pay and what you sacrifice for that pay. I'm sorry but CEO is NOT AT ALL A BALANCE (at least not for most people, the .01% of hyper-competitive people out there can have it!)

  • so you want to push women into leadership positions for the sake of having more women leaders? this is why there aren't many women leaders.

  • I think the reason is because the majority of women who have the choice to become leaders refuse to go for it.

    Ironic that the majority of women prefer a male boss over a woman.So even the women don't want them in there.

    Lastly, in the light of the rampant cases of false accusations, can we blame men for their skepticism? I am so glad for men following the Pence rule, who wants trouble with a female employee?

    Goodness, these days you have to worry about saying for example: Good Morning, You look great! They might go to HR.

  • I think this is an overly negative vision. I would rather have a discussion of the burgeoning stay at home dad culture as well as an overview of how our country’s forebearers, the native Americans, have strong matrilineal lineages. A discussion, a vision of a world where people are able to work a sustainable amount and still support themselves involves modifying our current capitalist system. Vote Bernie 2020!!!!!

  • women, men are all the same. People should succeed based on merit and hardwork, not because you're a man or a women.

  • All bloody 1% capitalists are enemies of the people and we do not like any of them, whether their bloody names be "howard" (what an idiotic kind of name is that, anyway???), "heidi" or "heil himmlery".

    And what on Mars has 1st degree mass-murder of innocent fish to do with any of this?!?? Beh.

  • All are nodding their heads because you all are women and women=feminists feminists=cancer and cancer needs immediate chemotherapy.

  • 1)First of all working is not a countable things that one can say She works more in house and He does less.
    2)It is right that men work hard and do overtime to fulfill his better half's requirements.
    3) Women do less full-time work and more part time work and that's why she gets extra time for her home or baby care.
    4) I feel proud that almost all the women feel sorry to born as girl and they want to successful and live like men like this woman but no men wants to live like women rather more manly as it is more demanding and respectful. I feel much proud of being a successful hard working man and I salute the whole mankind.

  • Boys don't feel pressure when they want to become succeed in his ambitious career choices but some women feel pressure to cherish her baby. And that's why they always compare so called their tough baby care+ career with men's succeed at the top position.
    Women always want entitlements without hard working and jealous of men being over hard working because they can't do even 50% of what men do.
    Only in USA men are taught to behave like women and vice versa.This is like teaching a tiger to behave like a cat and vice versa.

  • Simply because the average woman is much dumber than the average man. However, with the Feminine Dunning Kruger effect in high gear and an equal amount of women voting as men, we end up with these idiots in government like AOC and many others.

  • The reason few females are leaders was found by Barbara Pocock. She found that the corporate ambition of 75% of working mothers was to quit work and bludge off their child's father.

  • The problem is that you are assuming that all women want the same thing, there are women that actually don’t want to be in those positions out of there own will. There are women (get this) that actually want to get married and be a stay at home mom out of there own will. Trust me if women thought and wanted the same things as men there would be more women in power than men.

  • Most women I know want to create a home, not change the world. Why change it? I have worked for over 20 years and then got laid off and my employer stole money from me, tried to steal all my investments. Resentment, yes. Trust me, I learned my lesson the hard way.

  • It's not men. It's soley on women. They want it all and it's impossible. They are not prepared to give 100 percent to work and sacrifice everything else and I men's everything else. And they are just so dramatic in the work place. They cost more from the moment they start and the work force has to change to accomodate them. They bring their emotions and their social life to work. They choose NOT to reach for the top. It's soley on women and people need to stop blaming whoever and blame themselves.

  • Just look at the great women leaders of Europe …Thatcher / May/ Foster / Mc Donald….and how well they all got along.
