Glass Heel: New site

So first, love the name. It is a play on the idea of the glass ceiling. How do we break the ceiling? By being female, and wearing a glass heel that can spike through the ceiling. Is it possible to be both female, nice, and successful. It is, and I suspect this site is set to show us how. I am looking for some good things from these folks. Molly seems llke a sister, one who gets it. (Hear me, girl?)

Also Cinderella might have worn a Glass Heel rather than a glass slipper. Maybe Cinderella could be pretty and still have it all with or without the Prince.

As I have said before, I have Southern roots, I was a debutante, and like Julia Sugarbaker, I use my intellect as a rapier sharp weapon, but only when someone has been ugly to me first. And then, without using foul language (mostly) I take them down, but only to the point where they need it. I am sometimes called a bitch, but mostly that is from men who are not expecting me to as smart as I am. As you get older, you get used to it, but the anger over being criticized for your intelligence never quite goes away.

I find it disconcerting that women cannot be both nice and powerful. There are a lot of reasons for this, and I can talk about them all. I also want solutions. I have a feeling this site will deliver both to us.

Hope so.
