The Tyranny of the Queen Bee
Women who reached positions of power were supposed to be mentors to those who followed—but something is amiss in the professional sisterhood.
AWESOME and highlighted by Rush....
from the post
Having spent decades working in psychology, a field heavily populated by highly competitive women, I had certainly seen the queen bee before: The female boss who not only has zero interest in fostering the careers of women who aim to follow in her footsteps, but who might even actively attempt to cut them off at the pass.
The term "queen bee syndrome" was coined in the 1970s, following a study led by researchers at the University of Michigan—Graham Staines, Toby Epstein Jayaratne and Carol Tavris—who examined promotion rates and the impact of the women's movement on the workplace. In a 1974 article in Psychology Today, they presented their findings, based on more than 20,000 responses to reader surveys in that magazine and Redbook. They found that women who achieved success in male-dominated environments were at times likely to oppose the rise of other women. This occurred, they argued, largely because the patriarchal culture of work encouraged the few women who rose to the top to become obsessed with maintaining their authority. see link to full article...
What do you think ladies....Generalizations in the abstract....work for you?
My take...is the Feminists who "co-opted feminism"...are simply pissed because they are either UGLY, STUPID, self proclaimed VICTIM ....or NOT BEING a Man.
Feminism once considered fair play is not a militant "thinkLESS tank"....
