Mean girls

Girls are mean. I thought that if I attended a women’s college like Wellesley, it may force me to reexamine how I view other women, and maybe I could then have a more positive attitude toward them. This did not happen. If anything, I left thinking that women are just out to tear each other down because when one woman succeeds, it is at the expense of another. I experienced the fiercest competition I’d ever seen, and left thinking even more that I just get along with men better. In New York, I have met similar competitive women, even during job interviews, where it seems as though when I am answering questions, they feel threatened by me. Why does it need to be this way, or is it just me…?
