    Why Do Women Bully Each Other At Work?

    People often say women are women’s worst enemy and we’ve been wanting to change that statement for a while now. In the Indian context, this phrase is often used to define the long-lost saas-bahu debate, but guess what? It just doesn’t end there. This phrase holds true for not only Indian households but even for various workplaces all around our country.

    Every office has a stereotypical woman boss who is known for making her employees’ lives miserable. Now it may seem like old news but there are women who’d rather work for a male boss than a female one. There’s a common belief that says that some women do believe that their female bosses bully them more than the male ones. According to a research published in The Atlantic, the longer the women have been in their jobs, the less likely they will want to have a female boss.

    But Why Do Women Feel So?

    Women aren’t deliberately cruel. Hell, no one is. Then where does this feeling of bitchiness come from? The modern day workplace scenario isn’t simple. The competition is tough and to win the race of success, we are all fighting each other to get ahead, no matter how many people we knock over our way. Apart from this, there are few conditions that create this toxic attitude.

That’s exactly how women’s psychology at workplace works. For instance, when given a choice to choose a partner for a work presentation, a woman is more likely to choose a man over another woman who might be just as qualified and capable. The stereotype that men are supposed to be the superior beings is rooted in our being.
