Queen Bee syndrome

Research from the University of Toronto has shown that women prefer to have a male boss. Stress levels increased when women employees had a female boss, as did depression, insomnia and headaches. The explanation given was that successful women find other women to be competition – and also that females see leadership as a male role.
