Are women better leaders than men? That's the conclusion of a new study posted on the Harvard Business Review's blog, where they break down leadership into a number of factors, and find that women come out on top in most. Could it be true?! The Common Room is here to take a look at the possibility that yes, maybe, perhaps... a woman leader can be as effective as a man.

Take a look at the article: http://www.washingtonpost.com/nationa...

What do you think about this? Is this even controversial? Or is the idea that there might be something about female leaders that makes them more effective than men at running businesses or governments? Would you care if your boss was male or female? Do you think we'll ever have a female president, like currently exist in multiple other countries?Let us know what you think!

We'd like to thank Alex Sanborn,Samantha Schacher and Chelsea Klikunas for joining us in the Common Room!

This video could've been a lot shorter. They could've all just looked at the camera and said "Nope!".

Anyone in the military will simply laugh at this video. This video does not even come close to what actual good leadership traits are, and how they need to be used in order to be a good leader.

I think this video sums up everything that is wrong about the gender debate. Trying to decipher which gender is better is dumb. Any body who believes in gender equality already knows both genders are equally capable of leading. Leading is one of the few things that feminism can actually help with, because women are unrepresented in positions of power.  But please stop campaigns against 'man-spreading', the word bossy and portraying every male as a potential sexual criminal. I believe in gender equality but I do not consider myself a feminist because trivial issues that feminists fight for, the anti-male sentiment embedded in feminism and the complete oversight feminism has on issues pertaining to men.

I guess I agree with Samantha because as long as you are qualified, you should be able to do your job well.
Sorry ladies, on average, men make better leaders. It's just natural instinct for us to take charge. It's easier for us to push emotion aside. Not to say that their aren't any great leaders that happen to be women...

Woman will take anything they might be better than at men and go full force on it
Or... Maybe the women test better because women need to work harder to be accepted by their peers and as leaders in general, so only very strong women who are really good leaders end up in those kinds of male dominated fields. So that when they test them, the women do better because they had to work harder.... Eh?

According to my male teacher, women are soon "going to take over the world" because the women are "outnumbering us in employment rate 2:1 according to a study online" .
This is actually an interesting topic and question. Just such a shame that it is being discussed by these guys, except the short haired guy and at times the blonde woman they both seemed knowledgeable and up for actual discussion
