    Men conquer, women negotiate.
    The word "assertive" particularly caught my ear in those days. My first thought was that you've already lost the fight if your opening position is not to promote your needs in kind.

      and to tell people what we need, want, and expect.  Women don't do that well in the business world yet.

      What we also need is a world in which it's preferred that all people negotiate, and conquering is embarrassing and an obvious cover for fears of inadequacy.

      I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
