The Myth: It's Only a "Cat-fight"

The blog, “The Myth: It’s Only a Cat Fight” talks about rivalrous behaviors between women in a working setting and how it can completely disrupt an environment. There is a general awareness of rivalry between women, commonly, often jokingly, referred to as “cat-fights.” The term in itself, discredits the seriousness of the situation. It is a silent epidemic. Silent in the aspect that women who are recipients of this type of behavior often do not speak about their experience until it is behind them, or near to being over. Silent in the fact that there is often awareness by others about the behavior as it is occurring, but traditionally it is not overtly dealt with until after the fact, if ever. These so called cat fights are serious, they often are the result of indirect aggressive behaviors and can have a serious impact on the woman whom it is targeted toward.
