"Men do not intimidate me. I've had a great deal of experience with men challenging me. Whether we speak of it or not, there is and probably will forever be an invisible barrier keeping women out of the executive and decision-making positions in business and life. It's only because you are a woman, you are constantly looked down upon as "unfit" for the role. I've had all justifications presented to me: "Because you are married..", "Because you are pregnant...", Because you are a mom now..", "Because well a man can always stay late and show up whenever needed.."
I heard male co-workers call female colleagues, "Chick - Bitch - Old maid - Good girl"... Whom when confronted would act too cocky and have other male co-workers defend their case.
I truly believe that the only definition of a human being is through her/his talents. Not one is excluded out of this "Natural Law". Again we are back to "EGO", but this time it is a sexist ego.
Only when we realize that one does not know everything and it is absolutely fine that others show you the right way -even if a woman is the one guiding you -, that is when "Hope" for a better world will revive."
