Exclusive excerpt: How sexism helped turn tide for Hazel McCallion

I loved my rural upbringing, but I view myself as living in a contemporary world and as someone who helped build a modern, world-class city. Second, it gives me the feeling that some people would like to slot me into a role as a feminist, which I am not. I believe in hard work to get ahead, not quotas. As I have told many women’s groups: “Think like a man, act like a lady and work like a dog.”
