“There is a lot of pressure to be a specific kind of a woman. People don’t always recognize my femininity because I take on the more masculine roles in relationships and at work. I express my feminism through my mannerisms rather than how I look. Am I a lack of a woman because I don’t connect with that part of me, or am I still a woman?” – Jasmin Peltro works at WeWork and aspires to be a photographer.
“It’s ironic, some women worry that taking maternity leave will stall their career. Having a child and taking a leave from my job led me to starting my business and has been the most rewarding and fulfilling part of my career.” – Julia Pimsleur founder of LittlePim and author of “Million Dollar Women”.
I don’t believe there is a male or female role in terms of taking care of children. I think today there is a call for someone to step up for both parents to share the responsibilities. I am a business woman and a mother and I couldn’t travel and do my business if my husband weren’t caring for the children too.” – Mary Phan is a entrepreneur and founder of The Sketchbook Series.
