'Man's Inhumanity to Man' is a very familiar phrase. But a profound silence has prevailed about woman's inhumanity to woman. This book breaks that silence. While women may not act aggressively in the same way that men do, studies confirm that girls and women are aggressive, often in 'indirect' ways, and mainly toward each other. They judge each other harshly, in life and on juries, hold grudges, gossip about, exclude and disconnect from other women. Women envy and compete against each other, not against men. Many women also hold sexist beliefs. Women tend to deny that this is true, even to themselves. Since women depend upon each other for emotional intimacy and bonding, the power to form cliques and to shun each other functions to enforce female conformity and to discourage female independence and psychological growth.
