Female bosses freak men out

Sat, Jul 11, 2015, 01:59 PM
London, July 11: Men may feel threatened by female bosses and act more assertively towards them than male supervisors, new research says.

The study published in the journal Society for Personality and Social Psychology said that such behaviour by male employees working with female managers could disrupt the workplace with struggles over power dynamics.

"The concept of masculinity is becoming more elusive in society as gender roles blur, with more women taking management positions and becoming the major breadwinners for their families," said lead researcher Ekaterina Netchaeva, assistant professor of management and technology at Bocconi University in Milan.

"Even men who support gender equality may see these advances as a threat to their masculinity, whether they consciously acknowledge it or not."
