But young girls are taking all that in, right?
Actually, yea, they are. A new report released today shows that a staggering number of girls ages 8 to 17 believe it’s really tough for women to succeed in business (have we done anything to prove otherwise?). The study was commissioned by the Girl Scouts (they of the brilliant, girl-promoting ad campaign, also released today), and aimed to measure young ladies’ attitudes toward the business world.
A full third of the 1,001 girls surveyed said they believed “that while women can succeed in business, they rarely become corporate executives,” according to the AP, and that several respondents argued that women are “more burdened by family than men as they try to succeed in their careers.”
