Bravo! Your analysis is spot on.

and what social system demands that the professional woman act like the unnatural professional woman that you describe on order to succeed? Patriarchy. just felt obligated to point out the obvious.

"Your explanation of why women earn less at work is 1) either a poorly written intro or 2) a completely illogical essay. This just seems like your personal rant against what you characterize as the Professional Woman. But you have no real reason to suggest these are the women who don't do well in the workplace. Why not just blame the more likely result: women tend to choose lower-profile and lower-paying jobs."

Quoted for extreme truth.

Also, you can scapegoat the patriarchy for Carly Fiorina's ouster all you want, but her almost comical mismanagement of HP was what did her in, not wearing a pantsuit after Labor Day or whatever nonsense you seem to think is more important than job performance.

Maybe if you invested more time improving your work product and less of it dissecting the minutia of people's interpersonal demeanors, you'd have more professional success.

Sorry for the double post. I also apologize for misunderstanding your message.

What about just being yourself ? Forcing either personality-type you describe will result in the type of individual no one wants to be around, professional or not.

"Come on" probably says it better than I did. Yes, it's "just being yourself." I gave that up for what I thought would bring me success: Being The Professional Woman.

When I got back to just being myself, good things started happening in my career again, including other people helping me out.

No wonder you are making 75% of a man's pay. Judging by the sloppy editing and grammar of this post, your WORK isn't up to par, hence the lower $. And b/c I know you want to ask, no, the person posting this isn't a man.

You can't seem to finish anything in life, can you. Can't even get into role. Ever think it was you and not life?
