More women and workplace research

Here's another frustrating conclusion from a study of gender in the workplace. Men can get angry, but women can't. In fact, it's a bonus for men to get angry, while it's a big liability for women. Even better for women, the more senior you are in the workplace, the worse you are perceived for being angry... which is not true for men. There's a tiny silver lining. If you have a good reason to be angry, then you aren't punished as much. But you're still punished.

Now back to regular blog programming...

All the "normal" workplace dynamics I miss out on working in a female-dominated industry. I tell ya, if it were only men who got mad in the library world, we'd be more walked-all-over than we already are!
