Why women don't support one another

Read Peggy Klaus's piece in the New York Times. Here's a fascinating--if discouraging--excerpt.
And if you are a woman and happen to have a female co-worker who is a bully, watch out.

Bullies who are men, by contrast, tend to be equal-opportunity tormentors when it comes to the gender of their target.
