We’re also pretty good at owning our mistakes and bad calls, often the first to admit when we could have done something differently or made a better decision. We’re even good when it comes to ‘owning it’, you know, that thing we do to show pride or intent to take the sting out of being accused of doing something considered embarrassing or slightly dodgy. But there’s one thing that Kiwi women are completely shite at owning and that’s their success, and quite frankly I’m over it.
