    Why so few successful women?

    I was browsing Forbes richest list, and noticed how few women are on it. But in delving deeper, the women that are on it almost all inherited their money from parents or a dead spouse. So why are women so much less inventive?

    Nope. Married with kids.

    I get there are fewer women in higher jobs and so forth, but why are there none that have invented anything, or started major companies, at least in comparison to men.

    25% more women graduate from college than men. Why do they start fewer mega-successful businesses and why are there so few on the Forbes list that made money themselves?

    have you seen the male law makers on tv making the decisions about women and what they can/can't do with their own body's?

    there's your answer.

    there are plenty of rich woman out there but the Forbes list is a whole different caliber of financial success.
    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    I get that there are a ton of very wealthy women, but why not on the highest echelon? Why no Michelle Dell, or Willamina Gates, or Warrenia Buffett. Most of the uber wealthy created a new area of the market. Why haven't any women done that? When I scanned the list Oprah was one of the wealthiest women that actually made her own money.

    next time you are driving in the pouring rain ask yourself who invented the windshield wipers.

    next time you marvel at the clarity of a space photo ask yourself who made that possible.

    next time you see a flat bottomed paper bag ask yourself what guy invented that.

    next time someone shoots you and you do not die because of kevlar...

    ever wonder where levis, ll bean, esprit, and lands end get their cotton or why?

    look up spread spectrum technology

    next time you're loading your dishwasher...

    if you ever need a ship to ship or ship to shore signal flare...

    next time you use any refined crude oil...

    when your kids were born they were given the apgar test. ever wonder why it's called that?

    ever hear of geobond?

    if you ever need cataract surgery...

    next time you adjust the damper in your fireplace...

    why does the dept of defense call it's computer language Ada?

    how do you isolate a human stem cell?

    do you have central heating?

    first self made american female millionaire was a black woman that died in 1919



    at the time of her death in 1950 the woman that invented the coffee filter was worth over 3 million

    this is just what i found in 20ish minutes there's tons more

    Men determine who gets the most and highest accolades. Oprah is the most well known because she made herself hard to ignore.

    Now look through those and find the ones that made it themselves. Almost all are inherited from dead parents or Husbands.

    not almost all but a lot. i think it's sad that a lot of men made all that money and oops they are dead and the wife gets to spend it. these are men that kept their money. hoarding occurs more often among men. the self made women billionaires are self made... and women give more of their money away than men do, almost 100% more.

    this might be part of the reason. women solely focused on careers still are thought of as not having a full life. i don't think men are ever thought of that way. Tory Burch Says There's Always A Stigma Attached To Ambitious Women
