Veteran campaigners' advice to women seeking office: raise money
A few days ago, I found an article titled "Veteran campaigners' advice to women seeking office: raise money" in the Los Angeles Times. I was very curious about the type of advice that would be given and whether or not that advice would focus on behaving in ways similar to men or behaving in ways different from men. Some of the advice was essentially about being more aggressive. For example, Linda Griego advised that women not take "no" for an answer and be persistent when trying to reach their goals. I thought such advice was helpful, especially in regards to helping to counteract stereotypes about women not being resourceful or commanding enough to successfully work in leadership positions.
