Do Women Prefer A Male Boss Over A Female Boss?

Meagan-Good-in-Anchorman-2

If women were taking a new job and had their choice of a boss, they would prefer a male boss over a female boss by 40 percent to 27 percent, says a Gallup study of American women in 2013.

According to this study, ”Both men and women prefer a male boss. More than half of men say the gender of their boss makes no difference, but those who have a preference favor a male boss by an 11-point margin. Women are more likely than men to have a preference, with higher proportions expressing preferences for each gender of boss, though women choose a male over a female boss by a 13-point margin”.

If women want to break the glass ceiling, why the dislike for female bosses? Watch Katy Waldman, Kimberly Patterson, Anne Zeiser and Jennifer Owens discuss some of the possible reasons on HuffPost Live.
