This TED talk is a couple years old now but still worth a listen. COO of Facebook Sheryl Sandberg  after giving this talk wrote ‘Lean In’  a best seller discussing women and the workforce. Sheryl in her book and TED talk acknowledges  the cultural bias against women and the sexism they confront in the workforce particularly when they take up leadership position.    Her answer  challenge the  gender bias by talking about it openly  and acting in deviance  of the guilt, social norms and family/ community expectations  that can hold women back.
