Carly Fiorina recently gave her spot-on take concerning the barrage of harassment "revelations" against powerful and admired men in her post, "It's Time to Man Up" on Media.com. Here are a few potent excerpts:
Women are not shocked because we all have been living with this for a very long time. I came up in the men’s worlds of technology and communications. But regardless of industry, virtually every woman I know — myself included — has been perennially, and at best, merely harassed and propositioned, diminished and ignored; not as frequently, but too often and at worst, too many I have known have been sexually abused. Virtually all of us have been groped by someone we thought we could trust.

Did anyone else go see Wonder Woman this summer? The superhero biopic has broken records and glass ceilings all over the place, making it the highest-grossing live-action film directed by a woman, the highest-grossing opening weekend from a female director, the highest-grossing woman-led superhero film, the first Marvel or DC Comics film directed by a woman, and the biggest domestic earnings for a DC Comics film (take that, Batman and Superman!) Records aside, I was totally smitten with the film. I walked out of that movie theatre bubbling with energy, feeling inspired and ready to take on the world. My husband described me as “amped up.”
Wonder Woman’s creator, Dr. William Marston, once described Wonder Woman as “psychological propaganda for the type of woman who, I believe, should rule the world.”
We recognize the immeasurable value of women leaders supporting other women in the workplace through example, mentorship, education and empathy. We hope you enjoy our tidbits of legal and practical information, wisdom, and humor. Thanks for joining the conversation!
