Are women really each other’s worse enemy or is it just a myth and a stereotype?  What does the research show about women’s hostility to other women, sometimes called bullying, in the workplace?  Bullying is a learned behavior that gets fine-tuned during our school years.  Girls and women tend to bully using more subtle nuanced types of tactics that are relationship-based.  Men’s ways of bullying tend to be more aggressive. Is female to female bullying an issue that deserves attention apart from general workplace bullying? Is discussing women’s hostility to women feeding into the stereotype of women’s  “nasty” behavior at work?  Perhaps if women are bullying other women they need to be told to “put on your big girl panties” and deal with it, as the saying goes. Do we have different expectations of women’s behavior at work than we do of men’s behavior? If so, could that be playing a role in the perception that women bully women? Do we have a responsibility, as women, to support our “sisters” at work? Is there an increased likelihood of women’s bullying within the service industry?  Within any “caregiver” industry?  If so, what characteristics would play into that likelihood – or not?
