Have you ever seen people not only judge, but actually fear, a way of doing things different from their own way? I already knew that leaders may not think of women because they do not “look the part.” Now I know they may actually fear giving assignments and promotions to a woman. They have a harder time envisioning her succeeding. And they may fear that her different (feminine) approach will not get as good a result as the more common (masculine) approach.

I knew that our “unconscious images” created an obstacle for women. People who do not “look the part” are less likely to come to mind when assignments or promotions are being made. I learned from my former husband that people may actually fear giving an assignment or position to a women because they can’t envision her approach working.
