Outspoken harridans, school marms, bad mothers, bad fashion and conspicuously empty fruit bowls – that’s right, in this episode we’re talking about Women Leaders. We pay special attention to this question:
Why Aren’t There More Women Leaders?
We’ll discuss why there aren’t more, what barriers they face, what female leadership looks like, and why there should be more.
