Read this now: "Why Women Should Stop Acting Like Men to be Leaders"

gaywrites:

Men don’t push eight pound human beings out of deeply personal places. Men don’t undergo hormonal changes every month. Men don’t have to be constantly reminded of what sexy looks like via a higher percentage of sexual images of themselves displayed across magazines, billboards, TV commercials, etc.

Yet we hear women cautioned to “act like a man.” What does that mean exactly?

Caught your attention, didn’t it? 

This ABC story debunks the cultural colloquialism that women who want to get ahead in business and in life should act less “like women” and more “like men.” This concept poses problems from the very beginning - what do those descriptions even mean?

We certainly have fewer women leaders in the world than men leaders, and we know that men’s brains are more hardwired towards aggression while women’s are more closely tuned to emotion. But does that mean masculine aggression is what makes a good leader? Nope. In fact, the four most important qualities in a leader, listed in the text of the story, have nothing to do with gender. 

This article makes a fantastic case for women’s empowerment by stating flat-out that you don’t need to be a man to make it in this world. Whether or not you have interest in gender-type stories, you need to read this piece. It’ll teach you something, no matter how far up the ladder you are.
