The most dangerous person is the mother who is protecting her young. Susan would be a good example of this phenomena.
When I was a consulting engineer, if a client came in and said, I have a problem with this and these people oppose it, if it was mainly women I would say "let us find another way".
If pressed I would explain, you cannot win, they will always win in the long run and the PAIN is not worth the effort.
One of my clients had a PM who fought, finally the client rang and said - sort out the mess, I said not my problem, client said my problems of this size need your assistance sort out the mess.
Sorted out the mess with the women and the politicians, PM said what if the client does not like your fix. I looked at him and said - you have had 2 years to sort out this mess, I was sent in to fix it, it is fixed.
As I say in class, someone has to have the key, even if it is a 98 year old queen. As long as they are trusted all is well with the world.
