They don’t frame success through the lens of gender.
In some cultures, women aren’t so much as allowed to leave the house without a male escort. To be clear, I amnot saying that women in places like Saudi Arabia aren’t strong.
The repercussions for going against Saudi tradition if you’re a woman are grave. But elsewhere in the world, strong women have the right to view themselves and their accomplishments through their own lens.
They don’t think of themselves as being awfully successful“for a woman.” Being a woman isn’t a disadvantage. We must work vigorously to secure equal rights for women everywhere, not just here at home.
