FACEBOOK BOSS TELLS DAVOS: WOMEN LESS LIKED AS BECOME SUCCESSFUL


Sheryl Sandberg, the chief operating officer of Facebook, has launched a fierce attack on the gender stereotypes that hold back women at work at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Sandberg, who is publishing a book called Lean In on women in the workplace in March, singled out T-shirts sold in the US, with the boys’ version emblazoned with the words “Smart Like Daddy”, while the girls’ version says “Pretty like Mommy”.

“I would love to say that was 1951, but it was last year,” she said. “As a woman becomes more successful, she is less liked, and as a man becomes more successful, he is more liked, and that starts with those T-shirts.”
