A pitch perfect moment from ms streisand

In the latest Harvard Business Review there is an interview with Barbra Streisand… In response to a question and I quote: “You’ve been described as bossy and demanding. How do you respond to that?”
Her response is fabulous…” Those words would never be applied to a man. I addressed this in a speech years ago, when I said, ‘ A man is commanding; a woman is demanding. A man is forceful; a woman is pushy. He’s assertive; she’s aggressive. He strategizes; she manipulates. He shows leadership; she’s controlling. He’s committed; she’s obsessed. He’s persevering; she’s relentless. A man is a perfectionist; a woman is a pain in the ass.’…”
