Why? The truth may come out at last, that women are stronger than men!

Let's not overlook many powerful, wealthy men, as behind them lies their PBT, Power Behind The Throne, and without her, he might be a mere Nobody!

A good example of that is Obama who referred to Michelle as The Boss!

Well, since they're stronger, and apparently not advancing enough in corporate America, maybe more women should go into blue-collar/manual labor fields like mining, logging, commercial fishing, roofing, mechanics, road and bridge construction crews, and similar occupations where their strength and endurance in unpleasant conditions will get them the advancements they deserve.

Men work more. That's the conclusion the documentary came to.

Women typically start to have kids in their 20's to mid 30's. Once that happen, they stop making work a priority hence became less likely to get promoted.
Someone needs to do a study of the women who don't start having kids. The women in their 40's and above, who don't have kids, for a valid comparison. I've known quite a few of those; they're not as rare as people might think. Maybe it's more of a West Coast and NYC thing, IDK. But they're out there.

When there's a crisis at work, the first responders are typically males while females take a more passive approach to handling a crisis situation..
An increasing number of jobs are work-from-home these days which would create more flexibility for the employee and possibly even out the playing field for men and women.

From the 1970s into the í90s, women made serious progress in the workplace. Then that progress stalled, especially at the top.

Letís start with the double bind that women face. If theyíre perceived as nice and warm and nurturing, as theyíre expected to be, they donít show what it takes to move into a leadership position. But when they take charge to get things done, theyíre often seen as angrier or more aggressive than men.
The women whose rankings exhibited expertise were actually perceived as less influential than the women without expertise ó and in fact exerted less influence over the group. For men, the dynamic was the opposite... Women with high grades were also less likely to be called back than women with average grades.
Quadlin also did a survey of employers that suggested ó surprise, surprise ó that they valued competence more for men and likability more for women.

Beause men, on average make better leaders. There are many variables, and one of them is biological: much higher levels of testosterone. Not everything is a conspiracy.

Agreed. And Baby Daddies among them, have even more freedom than Baby Mamas.

Ahh. Like a boss. I guess you win that one.
As far as women advancing, I don't see a lot of obstacles. I'm not trying to be president though. I'm trying to be comfortably self-supporting with enough left over to invest and give away. In that I have advanced and succeeded.
