I’ve always found it so difficult to actually distinguish what I wanted to do from what I was supposed to do (or what people expected me to do). Not an easy advice to follow but it’s worth fighting for it!
When you have both genders represented, then you have a healthier point of view. The energy is great, you all are working together as a community, and everyone is participating in the exchange of ideas. You don’t feel a hierarchy; you don’t have anyone feeling like they are being left out or bullied or humiliated.
