Marissa Mayer has always been an interesting personality in the woman/career sphere. She is a role model to women and girls as one of those that “Made it!” in the Men’s world.
Since becoming a mother while starting her role at Yahoo! as CEO she has been criticized continuously for being a role model that goes against motherhood.
I still see her as a role model. She is smart, simple and focused.
This is why this blog post she wrote on “Lean-In” website is very important to read: http://leanin.org/stories/marissa-mayer/ to understand that she is a person like anyone else. With fears, confidence issues and uncertainty.
