"Girls need to see and meet women leaders who look like them," states Nell Merlino for Forbes. "Women need to create more places and situations where girls can try being the boss on for size. Girls need to know from women and men that being the boss, being a leader and being in charge are choices that they actively make, not something that happens because they are smart, pretty, sexy, perfect or good enough."
Merlino makes mention that Girl Scouts of the USA has just launched a major public awareness cause to highlight the urgent need to help girls become leaders, www.togetherthere.org.
"What’s it going to take to see more women consistently occupying leadership positions in the US and around the world?", asks Merlino.
