Men rule…

Men rule…

This article addresses the topic of men versus women leaders. As we have read in some of our readings, men are not the only people that would prefer a male over a female leader. In this article, 3 out of 4 women who did have a preference for gender stated that they would rather have a male leader. Women are forced to go against one another because they see other women as a threat. Instead of this mentality, women need to join together and promote other women in leadership positions. Another relavent issue is the idea of what traits are better for leadership. Because women are more communal and relational they are seen as a “lack of fit”. Society defines leadership based on more masculine traits and because of this, women are shut out of the opportunities to lead. Those women who choose to deviate from the norm are criticized for their accomplishments.
