Have you ever done something that you are proud of yourself for achieving, only to turn around and realize that those around you are giving you an underwhelming response? Have you felt as though you are battling against other women you work with for no logical reason? Perhaps you have felt envious that things seem to always go right for your female co-workers and not for you.
