Until recently, leadership positions were almost always filled by men. Women like Regina Dowd never got a chance to prove that they could succeed as a leader. However, it is often the case that women outperform men when they do get the opportunity to be a leader at a company. This has started to shift over the past few decades as more women get promoted into leadership positions.
