"Being a lady in a male- commanded industry cuts both ways. There are advantages and disadvantages. I absolutely observed the advantage of having a higher profile on the exchanging floor. I would stroll around individuals who knew me, in light of the fact that there weren't that numerous ladies down there. That helped my profession from numerous points of view." On Succeeding In a Male-Dominated Arena
