First paragraph — spot on. Last paragraph — it has taken a toll, as it tends to on women who work in male-dominated fields. Loud women — that made me laugh a bit. In person, I am all of 5'3" and soft spoken. I’ve been told I have a whiskey voice, and while I don’t know where that phrase comes from, I get what it means. But when I write, I suspect my words are loud — which is a long way of saying I’ll take that as a compliment. Thanks Rick. :)
