I can't believe that we're having this conversation. Rather old....

I have been following this very topic for 20 years as I am fascinated with it.   Women opt out of leadership opportunities all the time but it has no bearing on their leadership ability.  I never link being a mother (which I am), and being a leader, when discussing this topic.  Bottom line is women have embodied and demonstrated leadership competencies and characteristics for centuries that we have witnessed in areas in and outside of the business arena. The more we research the topic, the more we are able to link women at the top with profitability.  Because we still only have less than 5% women in C-level positions and less than 8% women on Boards it is difficult to make this business case but bodies like Catalyst have been tracking this since 2007.  Here are some other interesting articles that feature statistics on the topic.

Harvard study :"At all levels, women were rated higher in fully 12 of the 16 competencies that go into outstanding leadership. And two of the traits where women outscored men to the highest degree -- taking initiative and driving for results -- have long been thought of as particularly male strengths," the researchers noted.

Catalyst has shown that Fortune 500 companies with more women on their boards tend to be more profitable... gender diversity and improved profitability and stock price

 Jack Zengerand Joseph Folkman.  One quote from them, regarding their study: “…at every level, more women were rated by their peers, their bosses, their direct reports, and their other associates as better overall leaders than their male counterparts — and the higher the level, the wider that gap grows.”

This has been a fascinating exchange.

I'm not going to reply in kind. Instead I'm going to encourage you to do some actual research on the subject matter.

If you believe that hormones don't cause changes in human behavior, please provide supporting information. Please go educate yourself and to kick start your journey, read up on roid rage. 

Don't each too much crow, save some room for Pi(e).

If you look at those women who are accepted, they have a totally different personality. They are much more aggressive than your average women. There's a very strong relationship between behavior and hormons. The more estrogen one has, the less agressive they are in a majority of instances. Agression doesn't have to be in the physical form either.

In the examples provided in this mailing list, you can see how these women are more agressive than your average women.

What's sought after by people in the business world are characteristics that people believe are attributes of leadership.

In the case of social networks, that's something a person creates based upon their personalities and the same holds true to your support system for a majority of the time. I say majority of your time to exclude your initial childhood in which your parents are highly protective of you.
