 Progressive and Powerful Women Throw Their Weight Around

Women in powerful positions are turning into bullies and are throwing their weight around at the workplace.

According to the survey conducted by the British Association of Anger management, while such bullying behaviour is more commonly associated with male bosses, a fifth of female bosses admit to shouting or being verbally abusive at work.


10 percent of women executives admit to blaming and shaming colleagues when things go wrong.

However, almost 90 percent of those surveyed said they had experienced an increase in stress, with more than 60 percent citing poor management as the reason for their anxiety.

Mike Fisher, the association's director, said high-flying women are now encountering the psychological problems that have historically blighted the lives of men at the top.

"The main reason for an increase in anger is the inability to deal with stress. Women tend to pay more attention to detail than men so they sweat over the small things," the Daily Mail quoted Fisher as saying.

"They can be short-tempered and abrupt, and make underhanded critical remarks. It can be interpreted by colleagues as bullying," he added.
