Paula Stone Williams
“I've lived as a man & a woman -- here's what I learned ”
If you’re a man, at one point or another you’ve probably thought to yourself, “I will never understand women!” And if you’re a woman, “what's wrong with men?!” But your gender is all you've ever known, so how could you understand? As a transgender woman, Paula Stone Williams has lived on both sides, “and the differences are massive!” One interesting story, for example, with over 2 million miles flying as a man, any problems with fellow passengers were easily worked out. On her first flight as a woman, what took place between her and two men over seat assignments is eye opening. In this funny and insightful talk, Paula shares her wisdom for all.
