Research shows that 61% of girls are either ambivalent about leadership or say it's not important to them at all.  Studies also reveal that girls idealize leadership qualities and skills, like being talented, caring, honest, hard-working, confident, good listeners, and team players. But only 21% of girls believe they have the qualities required to be a good leader. In other words, she knows what it takes to lead, but she lacks the confidence to do so.

So what is happening? What is so discouraging for girls today?
