Newsflash: Powerful Women Get pregnant too!

A few weeks ago I wrote a piece for "Parent Society" entitled, "Pregnancy, Power, and Promotion". It discussed the media response to the pregnancy of Yahoo's new CEO, Marissa Mayer. A lot of writers described the shock and amazement and questioned whether she would be able to balance all of her responsibilities. 

In some ways, it was as if people were surprised that a married women of reproductive age could actually get pregnant. 
 

Leaning in to motherhood...


Perhaps they believed that success interfered with natural biological functions. My friends and I were outraged, which led to my article. Recently, I've been speaking with people who were unaware about Ms. Mayer's pregnancy or the media response. So, I thought I'd share my post with you. 

Please share your thoughts about the story.
