To close our week of International Women’s Day stories, we leave you with five TED Talks we believe all women should watch. Enjoy!
Why We Have Too Few Women Leaders – Sheryl Sandberg
“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 Facebook COO addresses the reasons for the rampant scarcity of women in higher level positions and what to do about it.
