Women, Leadership and Small Business
I recently shared several articles with a friend, all regarding the topic of the guilt or stress that so many women feel when they work outside the home. This included the recent comment by professional powerhouse, PepsiCo CEO Indra K. Nooyi, who removes the sugar-coating and reminds us that there really isn’t such a thing as “having it all”—that even mothers who manage well and seek a wide variety of help and resources still feel guilty.
“Really!?” She said, “Are we STILL talking about this? I thought we moved on from these issues years ago!”
Nope. And, I don’t believe we will—not as parents, professionals or a community of commentators—until we begin to address the “happy family” myth.
