None of us here today created this world where biases about women, particularly women in power, persist. We inherited it. Most of us -- women and men alike -- are trying to sort it all out. But there remains something that makes a lot of people uneasy about women trying to move forward ... I hope you draw less fire, but whatever happens, don't let anyone stop you from continuing to move forward.
