Women are generally advancing if you are slightly outspoken and fit a certain personality - not giggly, not "sweet", not overly fashionable. You have to be driven and behave maturely - and even then many will assume you are younger/less experienced than male peers who are your same age (this goes for the under-35 set). I'm now in a lower/middle management role and work for a woman, who works for a woman - so there are many role models and at varying times we've had several women on our division's leadership team. I took 2 maternity leaves a few years ago and don't feel they've worked against me. The day to day is harder - it means making up for the fact that you leave "early" by working harder in the day and being willing to work from home in evenings.

Maybe. If you are driven and ambitious, and patient (supervisor role in 10+ years, not 5)
