The days when only men would hold management positions are over. (1)_____. Despite a slowing economy, the number of women in management has risen to 16% in 1995, when it used to be less than 9%. One result of this tendency is that women are now more accepted in these roles, and it has also been found that women in management ease tension and gender conflict in the workplace.

A comprehensive nation-wide study of executive performance accidentally found that womenscoredhigher in almost allareasofperformanceevaluation, whilecompilinga large-scaleanalysisof425high-levelmanagers.(2)_____ . They tendto workharder behindthescenes, whilemenprefertheglamorous,moreaggressive sideof management. Themasculineapproachismoresuitedtothetraditionalstyleofbusiness, wheretheboss would work alone andsimply dictate orders to his  staff. Now, in the global information age,  teamwork and partnership are increasinglyimportant, and these are exactly the areas where women excel.

(3)_____.Itmay bethatthe same qualities thatmake women moreeffectiveasmanagersare alsoholdingthem back.Most womengetstuckinjobs which involvehumanresourcesor publicrelations, whiletheirskills makethem highlysuitable forthis typeof work. However,theposts intheseareasrarelyleadtothetop.Ambitious womenarefrustrated bythis,and manylefttostarttheir owncompanies.Another reason why womenareoverlookedfor promotionisthatmenareseenasmore dynamicandcompetitive. Womentendto workforthegoodofthe companyas a whole, whilemenarelooking outfor themselves.

In conclusion, although more and more women are rising to higher positions, there are still many deep-rooted prejudices and double standards that keep them from achieving the very top positions. Companies may say that they value interpersonal skills, but they still look for a leader who is decisive and a risk taker. (5)_____.
