Facebook's chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg has said women need to take greater action to create a more equal world.
Sheryl Sandberg became the first woman on Facebook's board in June 2012 and is currently Facebook's highest ranked woman. She said women could make "unbelievably effective" business and government leaders as well as entrepreneurs.
Sheryl Sandberg said: "If you're thinking about doing something, ask yourself what you would do if you weren't afraid and then do it.
"It's really important that since women make up half of the population, women start having half the seats at tables where the decisions are made and that is not where we are today."
