The Los Angeles Times quoted Emily Grijalva in a story about women coaches in the NBA. “The slow increase of women in positions of power has shifted the way people view leadership,” said Grijalva. “Gender stereotypes often paint men as more assertive and dominant, thus making them more natural leaders, but the idea of leadership is changing to include qualities more often associated with women, who are viewed as more kind and nurturing.”
