Careers for Women: Advice from Those At the Top
Introduction: Women Still Earn Less
There are very few careers where women earn the same amount as their male counterparts, but that question is not necessarily the primary view when planning our career paths.

Today we have women in positions of corporate and political leadership who have made themselves available to provide information on the best ways to move up the ladder and tips to maintain success both professionally and personally. There are even countries today that have female presidents and leaders, including Brazil and Germany, with women in positions of both primary and extreme leadership.
