The author reflects on how far women in the food service sector have advanced. She argues that in spite of the fact that the number of women who became leaders in their fields has increased, there is a pervasive belief that women still have to prove themselves more than their counterparts. She cites the reasons for the improvement that women are experiencing, such as the fact that women have taken charge of their own self-esteem. She recommends ways for women to empower themselves.
