Don’t cry

Interesting article in the NYTimes today about how women in business can’t show too much emotion:

“When people show emotionalism in the workplace, they are not taken as seriously,” said Mary Gatta, the director of work force policy and research at the Center for Women and Work at Rutgers University.

They point out that men are allowed to get angry at work, and that’s okay. But if a woman cries at work, it shows how weak she is. I don’t think either yelling or crying is worth anything in a business situation. I do dislike this double standard, which is so obvious, it seems silly that they wrote an article on it.

  1. What if a man cries at work, though?

    I think we all are forced to hide our real emotions too much and then it comes out as anger.

  2. What in the name of Jerry Brightonhammer was that all about?
    I dont’ know but it doesn’t make sense to me.
