Submission + - Sheryl Sandberg and Technology's Female Leaders (

DavidGilbert99 writes: "Dismissed as a "PowerPoint Pied Piper in Prada ankle boots," Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg has come under fire as her book Lean In goes on sale, accused of not being the right person to lead a movement to bring gender equality to the boardroom.
  glance at the male/female split of world leaders (178/17), Fortune 500 CEOs (96 percent/four percent) and FTSE 100 board seats (85 percent/15 percent) reveals there is a huge imbalance between the sexes, but in technology change is underway — and Sandberg is at the very forefront of it.

Along with Meg Whitman, Marissa Mayer and Joanna Shields of HP, Yahoo and London's Tech City respectively, Sandberg represents a shift in what was not so long ago an all-male industry."
