Women in Leadership: We Need to Be 50.8%!

When I first saw this infographic, it didn't tell me anything new. I always knew that women are wildly underrepresented when it comes to major leadership roles in the political and business sectors. You don't have to be majorly involved in women's rights advocacy to be able to tell that there are very few women leaders in America. However, it really affected me to see how stark the percentages are. Women are half the people; in fact, they're slightly more than half. How is it fair that they're only 10% of governors? It doesn't make sense that they're only 4.2% of Fortune 500 CEOs! If women are 50.8% of the population, then they should be 50.8% of all leadership roles, too.
