The Evidence Is There

The statistical evidence doesn’t lie. There are many statistics that show how much of a difference there is between men and women in leadership roles. This was heavily emphasized in today’s readings. One of the main things that I found interesting in these three readings was that two of them were written in 2007 and one was written in 2017, thus adding a ten-year gap to the readings. I started my reading off with the one from 2017, which I found most interesting because it was fully statistical based. However, as I read the other two, I was intrigued by many of the similarities that were addressed in the previous books that were marked as things that needed to change in order to have the numbers shift. For many of the issues that were mentioned, there is still statistical evidence explaining the lack of women within those leadership roles. While there have been growing numbers for women in leadership positions, there is still a long way to go. I think one of the main questions that I have moving forward is will there ever come a time where as a society, specifically in the U.S., that we are not asking these questions about women in leadership and instead it is the norm of the culture?
