Women as decisionmakers
This article argues that women make better decisions under stress and, therefore, they should be given prominent roles in leading organizations. The article also describes the phenomenon of "glass cliff," that is, when women are brought in to an organization only after things started to fall apart. While I instinctively dislike the essentializing implications of studies like the ones mentioned in the article, these studies actually defy stereotypical depictions of women leadership. I like that!
