The New York Times reports in the article "Backlash: Women Bullying Women At Work" that workplace bullying has risen to a new level because of massive layoffs and economic stress. No surprise there. The surprise is that women make up 40% of workplace bullies but they aren't as democratic as men. Men tend to bully men and women equally. However, female bullies like to keep it within the gender family by bullying women 70% of the time.

The article goes on to discuss leadership styles of women and how they react to stress and the stereotypes that they battle on a daily basis. To read the full fascinating article visit http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/10/business/10women.html?_r=1&emLeaders at all levels must have a no-tolerance policy on bullying. Stress is NO EXCUSE for bullying regardless of gender. Behavior tolerated is behavior accepted. And to my sisters in the workplace, grow up! Bullying of any type is unacceptable no matter who wields the power.
