"Men categorize women, in one of four ways: mothers, virgins, sluts and bitches. None of the above are suitable for the modern business day woman but, you can create your own image by selecting pieces of each archetype that work for you. The sexual attractiveness of the slut. The integrity of the virgin. The wisdom of the mother. The independence of the bitch. This leaves men confused and unable to piegeonhole you. What they are forced to do instead is …. take you seriously.”

Best for Business

  • Interviewer: Cm Punk and yourself call each other by opposite gender names. He calls you Steve and you call him Phyllis. What's the story behind all of that?
  • Eve Torres: [laughs] We've been friends for a while now. My father's name is Steve and my brother's name is Phil. There's a connection there. Punk and myself are members of Gracie Jujitsu so we train together, most of the time, if we're in town. We used to travel together and we're very good friends. I guess, the nicknames, they come from a great friendship.

I can’t tell you the number of times I have been underestimated, objectified or deprived of fair credit for my accomplishments based on my gender or ethnicity. We can either be discouraged by these societal limitations, or we can overcome them and strengthen our will to succeed.
