What Else She Said

"Certainly being compassionate and having the caring side is more of a woman's thing than a man's thing. And that motherly compassion has always been such an important part of my career and advocacy."

Abby never felt discriminated against. "The only thing I felt was the lack of women role models or mentors. If I'd had a personal role model, I might have proceeded faster or with a stronger sense of direction, rather than trying to find my own way."
