    Are Many Female Execs Bad Role Models?

    Female execs in finance fear they haven’t done enough to make their industry more friendly to women, reports the New York Times. Could the same be said of tech?

    By Jessica Stillman (Editor, Women 2.0)

    It’s wonderful when women reach the top of traditionally male-dominated industries, but do they have a responsibility to make the climb easier for the women coming up after them?

    That’s the question posed in a recent New York Times DealBook piece

    Marissa Mayer Leans In: "We Are All Capable of So Much More Than We Think"

    “New beginnings – professional, personal, or come what may – are always uncomfortable, but being open to them is the only way to grow. In the end, we are all capable of so much more than we think.”

    By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)

    Today, Marissa Mayer shared her “Lean In” story on Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In” website. She shares the experience of stepping into the CEO position at Yahoo!, adding a note about her motherhood and how it makes her a better executive:

    “I’ve come to realize that being a mother makes me a better executive, because motherhood forces prioritization. Being a mom gives you so much more clarity on what is important.”

    Just Because It’s Women’s History Month Doesn’t Mean It’s a Good Month for Women

    March is the month we celebrate the enormous contributions of women throughout history, but this year it was also a month with more than its fair share of sexism in the news.

    By Jessica Stillman (Editor, Women 2.0)

    Women’s History Month commemorating our impressive contributions to history is winding to a close. Too bad the celebrations this March were marred by so much sexism – particularly in the world of tech.

    This month saw awesome celebrations around the world for International Women’s Day and special events to mark the 100th anniversary of suffragists’ march on Washington, all of which underlines how much has changed for the better. But sadly, here in the present, March has also given us plenty of reasons to remember that there’s still a lot of work left to get to full equality.

    Shame On Those Queen Bees?

    An essay in The Wall Street Journal recycled a tired trope: “queen bees” in the office are making the lives of other women a living hell.

    By Joan C. Williams (Author, The New Girls’ Network) & Katherine Ullman (Program Associate, Center for WorkLife Law)

    An essay this month in The Wall Street Journal recycled a tired trope: “queen bees” in the office are making the lives of other women a living hell. We’ve heard this before. Powerful women are just grown up high school “mean girls” chipping away at the self-confidence of the women who work with and for them.

    Attention Women: You Are Not Pathetic

    What high-profile working mothers say carries weight with other working mothers whether we like it or not.

    By Stefania Pomponi (Co-Founder, Clever Girls Collective)

    Sarah Lacy’s article on Marissa Mayer’s life as a working mom suggests that women who are critical of Marissa Mayer’s statements that she wasn’t planning to take much of a maternity leave and that her baby is “easy” are “pathetic.” I agree with much of what Lacy says, including that we don’t need Marissa Mayer’s “permission to decide how to balance career and family,” but unlike Lacy, I do

    This Isn’t a Girl Thing

    Marissa Mayer’s decision to bring all Yahoo! employees back to the office has nothing to do with gender — it’s all about business and reinvigorating a stumbling behemoth. 

    By Shaherose Charania (Co-Founder & CEO, Women 2.0)

    I had a chat with my friends at Bloomberg last week. They were perplexed that the media was still talking about the strong move by Marissa and wanted my honest and frank opinion.

    I wasn’t shy when I shared it, have a look at the video clip:
