Do not need a plan. Will just pick a few and move on …

March is Women's History Month, but it was just a coincidence that my favorite Banter Bites this month were all related to women and women's empowerment (think about the fact no one ever refers to "men's empowerment").

  • March 2: Gendered Potatoes? (Not A Recipe) – I do not know about you, but I never thought potatoes had genders … but apparently, many people do.
  • March 8: Celebrate Today. Change Tomorrow. – Given my experience as an executive in a male-dominated industry, it is no surprise that my perspective of women in leadership is very different from Red's.
  • March 18: Is Feeling Safe Too Much To Ask? – A horrific event in London brings home the fact "being safe" is different for men and women, and explains why I sold my Ferrari?

Curious about Red's favorites this month?

BANTER BITE BACKSTORY: Both of us are habitual coffee drinkers, so were curious about the potential benefits of our favorite beverage to lower the risk of contracting COVID-19, although our initial reactions to the study were (of course) very different.
