Female Office Politics
Submitted By: workinggirl
I always hear from women's business groups how women are supposed to stick together and support and encourage each other. That's not the case at my job. It is just the opposite. The women are the worst at gossiping about other women, go to a manager if a woman co-worker makes an error, and also take credit for the work of other women so that they can't get ahead. If I try to change what is happening, it makes it worse for me. I need some advice on what to do about really bad women at work.

Women paint themselves into a corner when they act in destructive ways like this. I think men keep more aware of the bigger picture than wpmen do. Women seem to need to make these close emptional attachments at work - like a friend fest. Not everyone needs to be your friend. You can get yourself really beaten up if you don't realize it.
