Mashable reported on this woman in the UK who shot back against a male lawyer who said she looked "stunning" in her picture. The lawyer has since apologized by saying:
"Most people post pretty unprofessional pictures on Linked in, my comment was aimed at the professional quality of the presentation on linked in which was unfortunately misinterpreted. Ms Proudman is clearly highly respected and I was pleased to receive her request to linkup and very happy to instruct her on matters which [are] relevant to her expertise that remains the position."
So, before I read the interaction, I thought it was going to be a horrendous comment, like asking her out or saying he wanted her to be his mistress - something outrageous. My thoughts were all based on how the internet has exploded in support from women who are praising her efforts for speaking out against the man's behavior.
Yet, even though I do consider myself a feminist, I would not have been offended by the below interaction, and would have taken it as a compliment.
So, mogul community, am I alone in thinking she overreacted?
