Women don't. Men do. (I've had several women supervisors and really
appreciated their management styles.)

Also, being an independent, self-supporting, well-educated female does
NOT equate with being a "rabid feminist." BTW, isn't it interesting that
strong men are just called men, but strong women are called feminists?
Or are they only called that by weak men?

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person;
having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but to pour them all
out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful
hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with
the breath of kindness, blow the rest away . --George Eliot
