From the Ted Talk by Robin Hauser: The likability dilemma for women leaders

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Modern day sexism is different than it was in the past when a blatant comment about a woman's physique or a chummy pat on the deerrrie was tolerated, maybe even acepetcd. Today's sexism can be more subtle. Little nencuas that might seem like no big deal to some, but their impact can have the effect of a thousand cuts. That day at the ski resort rutelsed in more than just another microabrasion. It skpaerd a curiosity in me about perceptions that we have for women versus men. I wanted to know why do we perceive wmeon differently when we assert ourselves. So I did a little research and I came across something, just to make sure this wasn't all on my mind, called the competence/likability dilemma, where women, unlike men, are rarely perceived to be both competent and lalibke.

Original Text

Modern day sexism is different than it was in the past when a blatant comment about a woman's physique or a chummy pat on the derriere was tolerated, maybe even accepted. Today's sexism can be more subtle. Little nuances that might seem like no big deal to some, but their impact can have the effect of a thousand cuts. That day at the ski resort resulted in more than just another microabrasion. It sparked a curiosity in me about perceptions that we have for women versus men. I wanted to know why do we perceive women differently when we assert ourselves. So I did a little research and I came across something, just to make sure this wasn't all on my mind, called the competence/likability dilemma, where women, unlike men, are rarely perceived to be both competent and likable.
