I discovered that men were strictly subject, predicate, verb, while women went in for subordinate clause and use of the subjunctive tense.
She broke new ground for women in business, gaining acceptance as a leader and becoming a highly sought presence as director for some of Canada’s top corporate brands. In spite of a challenging professional life, Jalynn was a dedicated volunteer and advisor to Canada’s farthest reaching non-profit organizations. She passed away in 2015.
