(NECN) – In the year 2013, women make up just 14-percent of the world's CEOs, 18 percent of elected members of congress and just 22 of 197 heads of state.
Those are the stats given to us by Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, in her new  book "Lean in: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead.”

And while Sandberg acknowledges that society itself needs to change -- it's her position that women need to do more to help themselves -- that's caused the most controversy.
Joining “NECN Business’’ on Monday night with her take on Sandberg's views was Malli Gero, executive director of "2020 Women on Boards."
Her organization is a national campaign to increase the percentage of women on US company boards to 20% or greater by the year 2020.
