Ms. Nelson's essay sums up the blight of most my sisters.
We sit back with amusement when white suburban women struggle with their choices of whether to pursue a career or stay at home with their children.
All of the women in my life worked out side of the home or hustled a laundry or baking gig to generate extra money.
We are rarely invited to play golf with the boys. How many deals get cut on the course? When I am finally invited, I am their worst nightmare. "My God does she suck?" or worse "What if she out drives me?"
I recently had to explain to my CEO whom I am a direct report, that a sales rep wasn't my proxy. Furthermore, if he had any question to ask me directly. I have been managing this 10 million dollar division for 5 years....
I could go on....
Thank you Ms. Nelson
