Rethinking 65: Teach Women to Think for Themselves: Altfest
As part of that effort, give women clients more credit for what they can do and adjust how you think about them, says a leading advisor.
Truth to tell, women have long been on my mind — I grew up in a somewhat traditional household in a very traditional city, wondering why sons were often more favored than daughters.
Nowhere did this seem more true than in educational opportunities. Young men could pursue any career; young women were expected to marry, run a household, and be caring mothers to their children. Their “careers” were foretold and foreshortened when they wed.
Women were not celebrated when they pursued what were thought to be “male” careers. One woman I met years ago went to law school and was the only woman in her class. She was jeered and laughed at and discouraged from speaking up in class. As far as I know, after graduating she never sought a job in the profession she trained for, but stayed in her parents’ home, not working, well into her adult years.
