Towards men. As I said, she's a meritocrat, but in her experience (most) women tend to have just a little bit more merit, or else work that much harder without prompting, than males. There are exceptions, of course, one rather glaring one in fact, but she gets redeemed in the end. In another story, she basically tells Luke Skywalker that because of this sentiment, she has a bit more in common with Natasi Daala than she's entirely comfortable with. Edit: She's a member of the Republic Marines, actually, from the era of the Old Sith Wars.
