Hard to disagree with that statement. She was telling me how catty women can be to one another, how mean, nasty and judgmental. Personally, that has not been my experience with women, though I have heard countless women say that about other women.
I think women act differently when there is a guy around, so I don’t get the same experience a woman would. I also think not all women are catty and that it is not an all or nothing issue.
Can you help me understand the whole catty thing?
What am I missing?
What is it? What motivates that behavior in the situations they described?
How can I, as a counselor, help women have better relationships with one another?
I think it is important for women to support one another, just as I think it is important for men to support one another. We all need more support and understanding.

Thanks, in advance, for your suggestions on this,
