Intimidating conversation

She laughed in response, appearing to agree with my label.So I turned to Facebook to ask fellow women for their feedback.

“To the powerful women in my life—how do you feel when people, mostly men, call you intimidating or scary before getting to know you?By now, I’ve been called “intimidating” many times.Throughout college, the label has been placed on my shoulders time and again, and friends and acquaintances have made passing comments.In most situations, whether in a student club or group project, I am a leader.But being intense doesn’t mean I sacrifice friendliness or empathy.
