Intrafemale Trouble? Are We Really Mean?

Apparently mean girl behavior is much more prevalent than most of us want to acknowledge.

In her new book, “The Twisted Sisterhood,” Kelly Valen reveals that 88 percent of the women she surveyed felt “currents of meanness and negativity emanating from other females.”

We often encounter a flavor of mean girl behavior when we see women not supporting, mentoring, or collaborating with other women in the workplace. By not supporting one another, women perpetuate old patterns and limit opportunities for growth and positive change for all.

We are curious about your experiences and welcome your thoughts: Have you suffered from “mean girl” behavior? What flavor? Are we really mean?
