I believe in full equality for women and that means we should be treated as valid targets for criticism. By that standard, how many men throughout history have run hard for office or actively lobbied for a job without being called difficult for doing so?

If we want to get anywhere we have to be ambitious enough to want to get there but strategic enough so that a man either doesn’t know we want to get there or doesn’t feel threatened by our desire to go somewhere he may not have the talent or tenacity to go himself.
The way we can change that is twofold: put more women in power so that our country gets comfortable with the idea of ambitious, powerful women.
The second way we change things: Parents can teach their girls that being ambitious is actually a good thing.
Raising your hand in class when you know the answer is a good thing. Racing to win is a good thing and so is winning the race. And parents can teach their boys that ambition is not a gender-specific quality.
Neither is being a winner or a boss or a president and seeing a girl or a woman in any of those roles is a good thing.
