Re: “Focus on what we say, not how we sound,” (opinion, 3-9).
I am grateful for this piece on women’s voices by Karrie Zylstra Myton. I don’t imagine that it was an easy piece to write, but it touched a chord in me.
A few years ago I began to notice how men, including me, generally spoke up first at meetings and then continued to dominate. For myself, I just assumed that I had the floor because I was so insightful and had such important things to say. The women in the group seemed to prefer to listen.
