Men to Women: Shhhhhh

When Arianna Huffington pointed to the benefits of women serving on boards of directors, her male colleague snapped back, saying women talk too much.

That off-the-cuff comment cost David Bonderman his cushy gig: he resigned from the Uber board as the company claims that it’s determined to clean up its culture.


The same day, a male congressional colleague interrupted California Senator Kamala Harris — triggering women to express their outrage on social-media.

To most women, stuff like this is routine: we live in a society that expects women to take back seat or just shut up when it comes to important issues.

Whatever became of the saying, “I am woman. Hear me roar?”
