Saying women or men make better leaders is an overgeneralization of a large and diverse group of individuals who have nothing in common except for claiming the same gender identity. Maybe women are better. We're not quite sure because there's been so few female leaders, compared to their male counterparts.
I've never inquired because, frankly, I never thought anyone would care much about the answer. I was wrong -- and the thousands of people who shared the article on Facebook in the first 24 hours after publication make that clear. Yes, it's a great question, but perhaps I have an even more important one: Why are there so many women in PR... and yet so few women at the top?
