Sheryl Sandberg's Women and Success Speech Talks Differences

Sheryl Sandberg's women and success speech explores the differences in the ways male success versus female success are interpreted. For women unfortunately, the likability penalty for success still very much exists.

In today's world, the more successful a man becomes, the more he is liked and admired by both men and women. The more successful a woman becomes, however, the more she is disliked by men and women. Success makes women become disliked by peers and this is a serious barrier for women seeking roles of leaderships.

Women are also criticized for acting too assertive or aggressive in the workplace -- whereas men are not. This is because the modern perception of women is still one that doesn't reflect such characteristics typically associated with men.
