Women and Male-Dominated Leadership

Most women who have worked in academia or industry know why Anita Hill did not report sexual harassment 10 years ago. As a graduate student, my daughter faced sexual bias, but she did not complain. When she began teaching in a mostly male department, she still found problems. By sheer determination - ignoring comments about the "aggressive woman" on the one hand and her "lovely clothes" on the other - she is finding a network of colleagues who respect her work.Thank you for a balanced account of the problem, of what's being done, and of what women should expect in the workplace.
