For some reason, assertive women typically end up having a bad reputation. That being said, their lives are much better because they take no shit.
If you are questioning whether you are a badass woman check for the following signs.
1. You are opinionated but do not always think you are right.
Just because you are confident and assertive does not mean that you think you can have whatever you want. You speak up when you are in need and know when you are wrong.

You are a hard worker and have no problem when it comes to negotiating wages and asking for promotions. You will do what is needed to make sure your hard work is recognized.
