Obstacle 1:
Children Obstacle 2:
Statistics Obstacle 3:
Men Usually Lead Start Women do not often hold executive leadership positions in our society. Is it because they are bad leaders? Or have they not had the chance to prove themselves fit for the job? *In 2011, 16.1% of board seats were held by women.
*In 2012, the same statistic "rose" to 16.6%.

*In 2011, 14.1% of executive officers were women.
*In 2012, the percentage became 14.3%.

*Employers claim due to "supply problem".

*A "directory of women" was created for companies.

*Traditional role for mothers is to care for children.

*She can balance home life with work.

*No male CEO has ever talked about being a dad. *Still lack of data.

*More men in leadership roles.

*Needing a list not a sign of good leadership. *Females have the potential to be better leaders than men.

*Male leadership has ended in war and violence.

*Women bring new abilities. If women were the traditional leaders of society, the world may be an extremely different place than it is today. For now, the best case scenario for women would be an increase in the percentages from Source 2. Women need the opportunity to prove their qualities as leaders before theories or generalizations can be proven. What now?
