Ask the Readers: What do women do to sabotage their careers?

Miss Minchin, Dean of Students

Sometimes we women can't get out of our own way. What are the worst moves women make (or don't make) to sabotage their own careers?

Is it selling ourselves short by not negotiating salary offers? Do we avoid risk and therefore lose out on the rewards? Do we treat our workplace like our extended family and get too involved in co-workers' issues? Do we hold ourselves back by having children? (Why does it never seem to hold back the fathers?)
