    Having power or perceived to have power can bring up people's jealousies and/or scarcity issues.
    It unfortunately is worse when females come into their own and are able to control and influence their own lives let alone the lives of others.
    Thirdly it is also unfortunate for the female gender because there is also a group of females who forget all the (women and the men) that went before them to struggle and fight to grant the women of the future to have the equity and/or equality that can be present  today. In saying that we still as a gender have a long way to go.This particular group of females do not want to share their power either with other females. These fenales can be females who want to be "blokes" . Disrespecting and devaluing their own gender together with excluding their own gender. So that can result in this group of females not offering a hand up when or where they can to the other females trying to find an equal footing in their professions or even personal lives.
    The female gender has a long long history of being treated as a second class citizen. Either way? The female gender is either looked down upon or feared when the topic of power is connected with them.

    I believe most successful corporate types are called names behind their backs regardless of genders. A woman is more likely to be called a b--ch while a man is more likely to be called an a-hole.
    Some employees, underlings, and competitors either have a jealous streak or they resent the fact that such an individual has power over their career and income opportunities at that company.
    Anyone who takes on a leadership role needs to have a tough skin.
    Oftentimes the most popular person in a company has a low level position. Everyone likes her/his personality and smiling face.
