"The Myth of the Iron Lady"

I read Monday the 12th's WashPost last night and the Monday Department of Human Behavior was more interesting than usual. Apparently studies show that:

...women vying for leadership roles are automatically assigned two labels. The first is to be seen as nice and warm, but incompetent; the second is to be seen as competent but unpleasant.

I think I was seen as competent but unpleasant. In any case, the article discusses why people feel this way and how their ideas can be changed. I thought it was fascinating.
