3 Truths About Women In Leadership

Women have had a long way to go in achieving equality with men. They’ve come a long way since they first started working outside of the home, but we still have many battles left to fight. One of those is for women’s voices and opinions to be heard at leadership levels such as boardrooms and company boards. Women are currently underrepresented on these boards, which has led some people to believe that women can’t hold leadership positions or lead other women well.

The following are three truths about women in leadership

1) It’s not that women lack the ability, it’s just that they’re seen as less qualified than male counterparts due to stereotypes

2) A lot of this comes from societal pressures women face to be more caring and nurturing, which contributes to women not seeking out leadership roles

3) Women are often portrayed as being the “good” woman or the “bad” one. The good woman is seen as someone who does everything for their kids and husbands, while the bad woman doesn’t prioritize her family overwork.

This means that women don’t make time to be leaders because it would mean sacrificing either their family or their career.

1) Women face greater scrutiny than men
2) Women experience difficulty being taken seriously as leaders
3) Few women reach senior management positions

Women in leadership. The term itself might conjure images of women holding the top position at a major company or women with their television show. They advise about women’s issues. But though some women have made it to the top, there are still many misconceptions about this topic – and even more, questions that need to be answered.
