Power and ambition are still not considered ladylike terms. Rather than despair over the image of Lady Macbeth and her murderous power play, I went to New York City last week for The WIE Symposium, where I had the opportunity to speak with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. I asked them both about how we can change the largely negative connotations our culture has surrounding women, power and ambition.
