As a guy who grew up with three sisters (no brothers) Had two daughters and no sons, I can say I’ve never looked at women with a prejudicial eye. It allowed me to understand my emotions yet still be a guy who got dirty, worked on cars, farmed, managed, built houses and joined the service, It also helped me explain to many a man why they felt the way they did when coming from hard nosed fathers (our past generations)
I’ve always told my daughters they could be whatever they wanted as long as they put in the education and hard work it took to get those positions.
One became the Assistant to the Secretary of Defense and retired from service on a medical discharge after getting an ankle crushed while deployed. But she cleans up like the best of them. My other daughter is a working housewife who works because she wants to and not because she has to. When I ask her why she stated, “It sets a good example for Taylor” (her daughter) So I work different jobs to show and explain to her what the experience is like and what to expect in the future. She’s also a woman but she’ll knock your teeth out if pushed to far. lol (Must be that daddy training)
As with all things you have got to strive for the next level in order to advance, push yourself and experience failures in order to succeed regardless of race or gender. Don’t expect allowances or silver spoon feedings and you’ll be able to claim every victory that is yours.
