Despite the gains we've made toward gender equality, the odds are still largely stacked against women in many aspects.
But there has been concerted effort to instill in young girls the belief that they can and will rise above that. So how do you raise a girl to become a leader?
According to research made by the Harvard Graduate School of Education and its Making Caring Common project, unconscious gender bias on the parents' part plays a huge role in how both young girls and boys perceive leadership.
So if you want to promote female empowerment and leadership, these guidelines are crucial to keep these powerful, and often invisible, biases against girls in check.
