RE: [newtech-1] Lean In

Martha Stewart started an empire and then maintained it through a scandal.


She wasn’t famous for her TV show, she was famous for her cookbooks. She founded her own company and expanded it.


Kind of telling that you equate this powerful business woman with “watching tv.”


I never said those other women were given a hand out, but I reject the idea that as a woman you need to be second in charge.


She is a more of a leader than any of the women you list. She influences what women everywhere do on a daily basis, whether they realize it or not. She’s one of the pioneers (along with people like Alice Waters) in the food movement. She influences the color trends that happen in home decorating. She is a huge part of the success of Etsy and the homemade movement.

Martha Stewart went to jail for insider trading, Surely you can find a better role model. Let me help you out.. 


A few female CEOs of some *very* large companies.


Marissa Mayer, Yahoo

Indra K. Nooyi, PepsiCo, Inc.

Ursula M. Burns, Xerox Corporation

Denise M. Morrison, Campbell Soup

Meg Whitman, HP

Marillyn Hewson, Lockheed Martin

Gracia C. Martore, Gannett

Virginia Rometty, IBM

Sheri S. McCoy, Avon Products Inc.

Ellen J. Kullman, DuPont

Linda A. Lang, Jack in the Box Inc.

Deanna M. Mulligan, Guardian

Sandra Cochran, Cracker Barrel


So while you're watching TV shows like Martha Stewart and Oprah, there are women leaders out there doing the opposite. Not because they were given a hand out "Hey, you're a female. Want to be CEO?" but because they worked their way up the ranks or founded their own company.


I love this thread :)

One of the reasons why we don't see more of them, is because not many have the same psychological drive that pushes them to be great leaders.


Total bullshit.


The reason we don’t see more women leaders is that men have power and don’t want women to share it. Period.


When more women start and own companies, the situation will change. As will the definitions of success.


I reject the current definitions.


Martha Stewart is my model for success, not Sheryl Sandberg.
