Sheryl Sandberg: Why do we have so few female leaders?
According to CNBC, Facebook's chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, in his speech revealed the difficulties women face in promoting careers and leaders, and that we rarely see female leaders in society. Ms Sandberg argues that women often underestimate their ability to choose between "pursuing a career" or "personal career practice", in addition to the need to make a choice between a woman and a man more often than men.

"If you ask men why they do well, they say," I'm great, "she says," and obviously why do you ask? " But if you ask women why they do well, they often say they are being helped, lucky and hardworking. "How good is the situation with regard to the lack of female leaders in society?" Sheryl Sandberg thinks the best answer is: keep women in the workplace. For this, she gave three tips to women who wanted to continue career development in her speech:
First, don't always sit in the corner of the conference room, underestimate yourself rather than seeking opportunities;
Second, let the partner become the true partner, through the communication, lets the partner learn to share the housework together, lets more women stay in the workplace;
Third, don't "leave" before you have to leave, don't be afraid to get a promotion for the planning of having a baby or the responsibility of being pregnant and accompanying a child, and try to fight for the moment when each of you should raise your hand.
By practicing these advice, women are reminded not to underestimate their abilities, but also to fight for gender equality in the workplace.

On birth control, she says: "If we are going to make progress on this issue, we have to be very clear about what our intentions are." We are not talking about abortion. We are not talking about population control. I'm talking about empowering women to save their lives, saving their children's lives, and giving their families the best possible future. 」
Gates proposed that women around the world would be allowed to plan their lives through "family planning", and that the state and society would have better economic development and a healthier gender equality situation.
