What makes some women attack other women in powerful positions based solely on their appearance?


As women, we have come a long way, but I fear we have taken for granted just how much other women sacrificed so that today a female can even occupy a position of power. I'm no Hillary Clinton fan for example, but when you see other women attack her solely due to her "hair" or "clothes" does that not seem troubling? As women, it would seem that if we oppose another woman it should be to disagree on principles not pettiness. How can we grow as women if this is what we resort to?

    yes I recognize all people do it, but women seem to attack other women in power for petty reasons far more prevalently than men. I don't remember a man calling out a man on his hair alone for example or saying his suit made his butt look big etc. lol

    Excellent answer, you make so many good points and I can see how it could be our history that contributes to our self-sabotage. I do hope that as time goes on we recognize that our real power is going to be in elevating one another.

    Absolutely! Men are competitive and that's fine, but women tend to be back biting and mean when it would serve our best interests to not do so. shameful truly on our part. I admire men that can compete without all that added nonsense.

    Interesting indeed. Do you think this is something we'll "evolve" out of eventually time goes on and we have been in better positions longer? or will we always have a "mean girl/woman" streak?
