This National Women’s Month, we enjoin all “Juanas” to stand and break through fear and self-doubt as fear is the root of so many barriers that women face - the fear of being not liked, the fear of making the wrong choice, the fear of drawing negative attention, the fear of being judged, the fear of failure and the fear of being a bad mother or wife or daughter. We hold ourselves back in ways both big and small, by lacking self-confidence, by not raising our hands, and by pulling back when we should be leaning in.
