Revitalizing our commitment to gender equality | The Clayman Institute for Gender Research

With the visibility of female leaders such as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, we might assume that society is progressing steadily toward gender equality.

In reality, it’s the great granddaughters of today’s college students who may be the first to live in a world of leaders who are actually representative of the population. At the current rate of progress, equal representation of men and women at the top will not occur until 2085, according to a report by Judith Warner, Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress. Since the report was issued nearly one year ago, there has been an increase of media coverage focusing on women’s leadership, but the plan for real change is still a new frontier that needs continued research, awareness, and involvement.
