When women advocate for others, we stay within our societal roles. We are not seen as aggressive and when we champion others, the behavior is expected, applauded and rewarded - a lot. When we tap into this magic elixir we win (for us and others) every time. Is this a double standard? Yes. Does it work? Absolutely.
Professional female athletes aren't out to make friends. They're out to win. Girls need to see that this is not only acceptable but applauded. Girls need these role models to emulate.
