COT: Lemu shared with the PAX that we are always encouraging the men in our lives, and we should do the same for the women in our lives. He has 3 daughters, 2 grand-daughters, and another grand-daughter on the way. With boys, if they get hurt, we tell them to rub some dirt on it, and stop crying. With girls, we tend to coddle and over protect girls during their childhood.
Because of this mindset, we are not helping the girls, as we do not encourage them to take risks, like we do boys. Later on in life, men will take a chance applying for work, even if they are only somewhat qualified. On the other hand, women will usually not apply for a position, unless they are 95% qualified, because we shelter them from risk early in their lives, which makes most feel they have to be a perfect fit. So, encourage the women in your life, whether it is your daughter, M, sister or co-worker, to take chances and chase their dreams. Women do not have to be a perfect fit to pursue success.
