Women and the Taboo of Power

Equality between men and women is still a reality only on paper in the world of work. For women it was always difficult to reconcile their identity as a mother with work. Women must become more proactive themselves. The importance of the work in the lives of women is accompanied by the continuing difficulties in reconciling the roles internal and external to the family.


In many business realities, both private and public, both multinationals and small and medium-sized, achievements of women are spoken unfortunately very little, but they are a reality of driving economies and talents.

Women are smarter than men then. In addition, the power, for many women is a slippery slope, and has a component of healthy gratification that feeds self-esteem and self-efficacy when it crosses the limit towards megalomania.

This is neither an advantage nor a boast, but often becomes boomerang. To this end, the best way to win the disproportionate differences between the sexes in the work is not only hope that the organization alone stop accusing jobs by sex and that recognizes the necessary reciprocity between the public and private dimension of life of individuals.

The massive entry of women into the labour market, the introduction of new technologies and the growth of the service sector have changed the face of the work. The persistence of gender stereotypes exerts a strong influence on the disparities that still exist between men and women in the workplace, in the family and, consequently, in society, creating profound imbalances between the sexes.

The stereotype of the male is much more oriented to individualism and proactivity to take charge than females marked by the taking care. You do it, however, that all of society note of the needs of humanity and reproduction of domestic life, and especially that the structure of current work does not meet the needs of any individual, whether man or woman.

A change in this regard is only possible through the combined intervention of government agencies which, alone, may introduce official measures which ensure equal treatment in the employment sphere. Because cultural changes are slow, labour policies and the family are still insufficient, the entire community must engage in the reduction of inequalities.


Every day they work and produce, manage complex environments, guide professional groups, and govern organizational climates, getting great results in many different fields from experimental research on complex international projects and innovative management of medical-surgical areas where they are points of excellence.
