Lessons from Florida's First Elected Female Lieutenant Governor
Ninety-four years after women's suffrage in the United States, intelligent and well-educated females still battle stereotypes, discrimination and, sometimes, their own fears, when working in male-dominated professions.
And there are still many of those! From the famously boys-club cultures of Silicon Valley to construction and the automotive industry, guys remain the standard in many industries – that also tend to pay better than female-dominated fields.
"Sure, women face challenges, some of them pretty unpleasant, when they're the minority in their chosen profession," says Jennifer Carroll, (www.jennifercarroll.com), the first female – and first black – elected lieutenant governor of Florida under Gov. Rick Scott, and a retired U.S. Navy lieutenant commander.
Carroll, who shares her experiences in her new autobiography, "When You Get There," says what she learned in childhood and in the military helped her to not only succeed, but to be strong and confident through even the most difficult times.
