Women and Leadership

Just a wee recap, then - according to John Tory, men get ahead individually because they will complain about how they are being treated.  Part of aggressive manliness is undermining opponents, which can take the form of bigoted comments.

Women, on the other hand, are generally less self-serving.  When they see injustice, it's not the divides that matter to them most, but the defense of what they believe in.

Even if they themselves end up in the line of fire as a consequence.

Is it any wonder that the more women are included in society at all levels, the healthier, more resilient and more successful societies become?

This is 2014 - we can do better.  And together, we will.
