Interesting article.

However, I have to call BS on this one....

What’s more, the group found, women must work twice as hard as men to achieve the same level of recognition and prove they can lead.


Really? What unit did they measure "work" in? Sounds like another statistic someone pulled out of their ***.

While I've had great women mentors, peers and friends, I had a horrible experience with my first manager who happened to be a Polish woman. She was insecure, manipulative, lack of knowledge of the field and was just overall unbearable - extremely hard on the girls on her team. The end result was - every girl left the team ( by moving to other teams or quitting). She left the company a few years after.

Also, sad to admit, the gossipy crowd in the office also consist mainly of girls. It is also a bad cycle - because even a guy chit chat as much as a girl, somehow the girl is perceived as the bad one if not worse.

It really sucks to be a young woman in a male-dominate field - it's not just about to roll your sleeves up and show everyone you are smart, humble and hard working. Even you don't get any special treatment - somehow you got the job because you know someone- because you are a girl-because you are a minority. Yup, no one cares you actually worked hard to earn your degrees, to build your credentials and had to WORK harder to proof a point.

when men bully, it's bullying. when women bully, it's women bullying. This is nothing new.
