Hillary Clinton Is Waving the Mom Flag in a Professional Setting. Should You?


Andrea Kramer, commenting as co-chair of the Firm’s gender diversity committee and co-author of a new book, Breaking through Bias, said it remains risky for most women to emphasize their roles as mothers while at work. Speaking of Hillary Clinton’s “mom emphasis,” Ms. Kramer said, « You’re not Hillary. I’m not Hillary. She’s a very special case. We call this the Goldilocks Dilemma. If a woman is seen as too hard, they don’t like her. And if she’s too soft, why would you have her on your team?”
