Mindy Kaling says she feels the need to send apology gifts for being assertive



Mindy Kaling spoke at the Women in the World Summit a few days ago, and she discussed the challenges of being a woman in charge of her own television show in Hollywood.

"I am very decisive, but I also care what people think of me. I want it to be a certain way, but if I stay for too long, I'm like, 'But there's some wiggle room.'[...] I'm very assertive, even to the point of being brusque, and then I just send cupcakes with a note that says 'I'm sorry that I was so assertive. Love, Mindy. I'm sorry I demanded respect at that meeting, here's a puppy party.'"
