4 Women In Power On How They Rep Their Feminine Power

The legend James Brown once said, "This is a man's world, but it would be nothing without a woman or a girl."

Since JB declared that statement in his 1966 hit, it's not just a man's world anymore. While women have been and are still the minority in many industries, we are are increasing in numbers and are making impressive strides in male-dominated industries. However, despite our triumphs, we still struggle at times. Because it can be difficult to demonstrate our leadership skills while maintaining our femininity and sense of self, we sometimes struggle when working in spaces where males are the majority.

We recently caught up with four girl bosses from varied professions, and they shared their biggest tips on affirming and empowering themselves in male-dominated industries - high heels and all. Click through the gallery below.

What She Says:

"I believe that you should always maintain your femininity in whatever respect that means. Do not feel like you have to tone down who you are or be someone you're not. Your employer hired you because of who you are, not someone who they are forcing you to be (or who you think they want you to be). [To me] femininity means different things for every woman, and you should be comfortable in your own femininity and own it. If your boss wanted to hire someone else, they would have. They hired you because of the diverse perspectives you can bring to the table. My advice?

"Be a boss babe and bring your light, amazing hustle, and energy to every space you occupy."

BDB: The Thing Most Women Tend To Ignore While Dating

In the crazy world of dating, so much attention is placed on the behavior during actual dates. Whether it is choosing the right outfit or making a good first impression, the focus tends to center on the in-person time spent together. But something that often gets overlooked is the significance of "between date behavior (BDB)." BDB is not just generic good morning text messages (that can be sent to 10 women in one minute), but rather text check-ins during the day and even nightly phone calls. This is the time when two people are apart but still find time for connection.
