For some background, altho I’m sure you’ve already heard about it. http://www.techradar.com/news/world-of-tech/marissa-mayer-quits-google-to-become-yahoos-new-ceo-1089162
I was listening to NPR right after it was announced and one of their guests basically said it was a way for Yahoo to not take responsibility for their downfall. That the Yahoo board is silently expecting her to fail because she’s pregnant and when she does, she will become the scapegoat. It’s a completely unfair presumption on the part of the guest (hey, it might be true, who knows), but do you think this is powerful enough to change the face of women in the workforce? That pregnancy won’t be held against us? The only issue is that she says she’s working through the pregnancy and birth of her child and I’m not sure that sends a fair or practical example either.
