So much chatter about why the percent of women on the earth isn't the same as the percent of women in this business or that industry or the boardroom down the hall.
Reach back and dust off something we were ALL told, probably sometime between ages 3 and 5:
Boys and girls are different.
When we were told this, we were NOT told that one was better. Because one isn't better. Just different. So what.
We can keep making a big deal out of how we are different and why we are different, and how to "fix" or "equalize" it (God help us) or we can accept and embrace the simple fact that boys and girls are different and SHOULD BE. Know why? Because PEOPLE are different. So what.
Love the differences. Work with the differences. Respect the differences. And quit obsessing about HOW & WHY people are different.
In a very vulnerable and real piece by my refreshingly unlawyerly friend Heather Bussing, I think you'll find the reasons to celebrate and love the difference.
"Being a woman is a million different things, and nothing in particular. Labeling work and life questions as women’s issues is at worst, a distortion; at best, a distraction."
