Ed Beem’s column, “Let a woman do it” (The Universal Notebook, July 11),was spot on. Women have the innate capacity to effect positive change in ways that men don’t. Whether it’s in the area of political leadership or business or sports, women have an innate ability to work collaboratively with others to get positive things done. And they don’t act like tyrants and babies in order to do it.
It’s well past time for men (and women) to support women in any field they strive for, especially those that are vital to moving the nation and the planet forward.
Patriarchy must end. Our lives depend on it.
