The growing success of powerful women has led many to the conclusion that more women's faces in high places will challenge sexism. Representation, and the elevation of voices, supposedly create the basis for ending institutional sexism.
However, getting more women onto corporate boards or elected to high office, whether they’re black, queer, refugee, trans, or women who grew up poor, will not change the fact that the vast majority of women have to accept low pay, poor working conditions, inadequate housing, and underfunded social services, and are subject to gender roles, sexist stereotypes, and other sexist oppression. The success of powerful women in climbing to the top largely hinges on their contribution to maintaining this situation as it is.
