I honestly find if I act dumb.. Men do not listen and they try to push you around. When I take control things get done

Not at all. If you have the knowledge and you know what you are doing you should always show it. Never play down to anyone. I just want my boss to be competent doesn't matter what gender they are.

Many CEOs who make gender diversity a priority—by setting aspirational goals for the proportion of women in leadership roles, insisting on diverse slates of candidates for senior positions, and developing mentoring and training programs—are frustrated. They and their companies spend time, money, and good intentions on efforts to build a more robust pipeline of upwardly mobile women, and then not much happens.

Some guys (like me), really like"intimidating" (read: manic and awesome) girls. In my experience, people who are shy and retreating are pretty boring*, no matter their gender. It absolutely astounds me when I hear people say"I like shy girls." That seems like a recipe for an awkward silence filled relationship. Confidence is sexy, no matter what your gender.

The person that is qualified should lead. No man should feel threatened by a strong female boss. We must stop with the old time thinking.

We have been multitasking and taking care of others affairs all of our lives. Of course women can multi task better than men and can do alot of other tasks with a higher level of precision than a male could. Get ready men because we are here to stay in the working world.

In short, women are much less likely than men to be in leadership positions. In universities, businesses, courts, unions, and religious institutions, male leaders outnumber female leaders by wide margins.

I must admit that I prefer a male boss simply for the fact that is what I am more comfortable with. I have had female bosses and I do not have a problem with it. The best person should get the job.

One key obstacle to women’s leadership is unconscious or implicit bias, which can cloud judgment in ways people are not fully aware of. To help better understand the power of hidden bias and how to mitigate its effects, AAUW created an online test in collaboration with Harvard University and Project Implicit.

I come from a family of strong successful women and I do not think they should play down to anyone. What is the reason for having knowledge if you mus suppress it. Let your light shine whether others want to see it or not.

In a word yes. For centuries women have often needed to dumb themselves down to not threaten the ego of men. Men are often depicted as saying women are not smart but rather emotional. This stigma allows for men to dismiss a strong minded woman as being a
b-tch. In stead of regarding this woman as a leader she is discounted as being emotional in a negative way. So women have needed to cultivate ways to get their point across with out offending the male ego. While no one takes a bimbo seriously, showing the right amount of ditsy never hurts.
