The opportunity to get over it

Major General Jessica Wright, undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, remembers when she was a brand-new lieutenant, and a superior told her that he didn’t like females in the military.

“There were 500 things going through my head,” the major told Katty Kay and Claire Shipman, who write about the incident in their book The Confidence Code. “And I looked at him and said, ‘Sergeant Minski, you have an opportunity now to get over that.’”

The two became friends, and the sergeant even mentored the young officer.

The major general, Kay and Shipman conclude, is a good example of a confident woman because she takes action, makes decisions and acts boldly.
