Who is the woman? Where is she located (geographically)? I am asking
because it sounds as if she would make a great speaker and mentor and
people (including me) are interested in such women.

Are there other recommendations out there? We need to identify these
women.

   I would not want to speak for other women, but it depends on the nuances
   of *aggression*. I like assertiveness, but am offended by abrasiveness
   -- too much like the old boys. I support other women because I don't
   rely on men for my self-identity. From what I've seen in my workplace,
   some women continue to set barriers for themselves and are afraid to be
   assertive, for fear of losing their jobs or the respect of the men who
   are in control. So it's not a matter of women supporting other women,
   but women sharing the vision of other women. Edith
