Sexism in finance is just like sexism in politics. They are the game of herding and leading. financier or politician is like wolf in wolf pack. The interactive dynamic in wolf pack is much different than in any other animal groups. Attentiveness or empathy probably will serve one well in any other group but just won’t in a wolf pack. I can think of no exception, even iron lady has adopted more merits of iron than of lady. Her lesson:becoming wolf is the only way to survive and thrive in a wolf pack especially if one is a very determined lady.
