Anteater had started her new job at a very large company. It was a field mostly dominated by men and she felt a little overwhelmed trying to figure out how she could make herself known and even out the level between herself and her male counterparts. Her friend Dove told her the one thing she had to make sure to avoid was acting like a man. As easy as it would be to play the part, acting like a man would do little good in the end. So, after months on the job, Anteater had made herself known to the men not by acting like one, but by working by their side as a woman.
