As soon as I saw the words “pregnant ” and “new CEO” put together, I quickly realised that something special was happening as it doesn’t happen often to see those words next to each others..
You have no idea how emotional I felt by reading the news this morning about Marissa Mayer, new Yahoo CEO and pregnant! Wow, I totally had shivers and a great feeling of respect for whoever decided that being pregnant and be promoted at the same time was finally acceptable.
Brilliant… just brilliant…
I then started reading different views on the news and while some of them just filled me with joy as people like me totally realised the important achievement in this woman’s life and hopefully a beginning of a radical change in society where we could actually see more working mums covering top roles, I sadly came across to different opinion of sceptical people who were doubting the possibility that a mum to be could fit such an important role. Their argument is that she will probably be in need of an entourage of people able to patiently accommodate a “soon mum to be” moods and wishes.
Silly.. pathetic..disgusting… narrow minded people who still believe only man can rule the world. I cannot wait until Marissa will prove them wrong once again.
Yahoo made such a statement by taking Marissa on board and I just cannot express how much respect they earned by doing this from my part and probably from all the other working mums in the world.
Well done Yahoo!
