How should women lead?

“If you want to be a leader you’ve got to think of yourself as a human being, and not as a woman or a man.” ~ Arnold Schwarzenegger

‘Man’ and ‘woman’ are fictions of the human imagination. ‘Male’ and ‘Female’ are biological realities based on what chromosomes you’re born with.

Gender is a social construct that changes over time, a myth that a particular culture agrees to. The definition of ‘woman’ in the United States is very different today than it was 200 years ago. The definition of ‘female’ has not changed at all.

“How should women lead?,” is a meaningless, even destructive question.
