“this leaves men confused and unable to pigeonhole you. What they are forced to do instead is… take you seriously.”

Whoever wrote this dialogue is a freakin’ genius

The way to stop men from making generalizations about you because you’re a woman is to make generalizations about them because their men? Got it!!! Great plan!!!
^you completely missed the point of this.
She’s not saying every man does this, but, especially in the corporate business world, men don’t take women as seriously. That’s just a sociological fact.
So basically if you’t can’t beat ‘em, play into their stereotypes and use it as empowerment.
I work in corporate business… I can say with confidence that it might’ve been true once but isn’t in this industry. Sex sells to men who don’t know any better. Wisdom, intellect, and integrity will get you places… But the categories women go into are staff, management, and entertainment as opposed to the men who can only be staff or management. I didn’t miss the point… I just pointed out that once again I’m lumped in with men as a whole. I don’t want to have labels either.
And I get lumped in with women as a whole as emotional and weak and whatnot.
Just because she didn’t say “most men” doesn’t mean you have to take offense to it. I don’t take offense when my guy friends bitch about girls in general and they don’t say “most”.
It’s one thing if you immediately get treated like shit because of a generalization.
And in the grand scheme of corporate business actually: yes, women experience glass ceilings in promotion and still get paid less. Not every single women in business, but the majority.
