Why we have too few women leaders

Female empowerment? Yes, it could be considered a hackneyed topic that has been repeatedly professed by many. Despite it being trite however, female empowerment needs to be regularly practiced by women.

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg shares a great message in her lecture entitled, "Why we have too few women leaders," that will definitely serve as a beneficial understanding for many women who are actively pursuing their dreams.

Sandberg shares that women inflict subservience upon themselves in the workplace. Sandberg states that women underestimate themselves, and make themselves inferior to men and higher authority. This revelation makes it apparent that we are in control. We have the power to let it cease.

Let's take note and attempt to ban self-doubt and gender hierarchy.

Know and actively exercise your potential, let it manifest itself, and acquire those desires and dreams that you have been coveting.

Here's to higher self-confidence, higher self-esteem, and higher self-worth!
