I love what you are saying here, Steve. If we applied similar criteria in every area of business and life, we would see a quantum leap in performance and a new sense of opportunity among women.

I am trying hard, as a middle-aged man, who grew up, like you, in Australia, to ask is this how I would like my daughters, wife, mother, sister, or female friends to be treated?

The answer, even now, is almost always no. We take easy attitudes like "that is how the world is" or "women are just not assertive."

In my opinion, this is not always a male problem. Women have the same attitudes toward their own sex, and tolerate treatment of women that ranges from unfair to criminal. They talk about violence toward women, and its graphic depiction in books and movies, as though it is a grand old tradition, an inevitability.


Very interesting website. I am so looking forward to reading more posts.
