In our Women Leadership group at the office, this article was shared with us, and I decided to share it here as well. It's such a great article about how women handle gender bias in the workplace. Powerful women know how to flip feminine stereotypes to their advantage.
"One former chief executive described hers this way: “I’m warm Ms. Mother 95 percent of the time, so that the 5 percent of the time when I need to be tough, I can be.” She embraced a stereotype that typically holds women back — the office mom — but flipped it around, using its momentum to propel herself forward. I call it gender judo."
