    In a big company, it's difficult for a woman to be a manager. (Why is that?)
    Thank you

    Don't leave a space before a comma or any other punctuation.

    Re: woman /female

    ***Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.***

    I think woman manager is not good because some might think you're a manager of women.
    Or would it be a women's manager?

    Anyway, use 2006's sentence.

    Cheers!
