Russian Spy Anna Chapman Says Women Do Not Need To Talk About Their Rights To Get What They Want

Russian Spy Anna Chapman Says Women Do Not Need To Talk About Their Rights To Get What They Want

In an interview with Forbes, former Russian spy and newly minted venture capitalist Anna Chapman (that is quite a resume) said “If you are a decent, smart woman, if you bring value, you will go as far as you want, period.
