No American politician who has run for president has survived the media and voter hostility that Hillary Rodham Clinton has. She is clearly in a category all her own. But as voters, there are four Hillary groups Americans fall into -- lovers, haters, those who hate to love her and those who love to hate her.

The Cupcake Stigma and Respect for Women Entrepreneurs

Joanna L. Krotz

Cultural biases and conventions simply don't put "woman" and "entrepreneur" in the same space. The archetype remains tethered to the hunter male, a relentless warrior who vanquishes any and all unbelievers. Women continue to be seen by funders, and really the public at large, as newbies or juniors-in-training.

The push for gender equity has been long and hard. Many women, including myself, have endured challenges of subtle and not-so-subtle biases in the workplace.

In preparing for a group mentoring session recently, I found myself reflecting on examples from my career that I could share with the group about courage.

What would happen if every country decriminalized prostitution? Not just the few that have already disastrously done so, but what if every government legitimized pimps and brothel owners and failed to hold men accountable for purchasing human beings for sex?

The Modern Femme Movement

Being a leader is not a title held only by the smartest and the fittest. Sadly most people, especially women, don't see themselves as leaders simply because they don't manage a company, organization or teams of people. However, those same people are parents, partners, volunteers, family members, and friends. All of those roles have a leadership component to them one way or another.

"I don't trust you..." It's the sentence we all dread. How can someone not trust me? I'm a good person. Trust is one of those incredibly loaded words. What trust means to one person may mean something else to someone else.
