So, not a 'real' woman
only technically so. I'm not hatin', but I mean, this person did not go through the process of living an entire life as a woman, thus overcoming the particular obstacles presented to women in the field so...sounds to me like a poor choice. Oh sure, they(awkward grammatical choice, I know, but consider the context) may have conquered their own issues and whatever, but being a guy up till 2005....definitely made it statistically easier for him/her to make it that far. How about a real female business leader like Indra Nooyi, the woman who is on top of PepsiCo?
