While summer land is probably a little behind the times, there is still some truth in it. While successful women are not shunned where I live, I do think that all the other things women must do such as being social, taking care of others and - yes - spending much more time on their looks than the average straight man - these things lead to that women are seldom top achievers.
When you are obsessed with your work, you become less of a woman. And no matter what people say, it takes a great deal of sacrifice, focus and obsession to become truly excellent at anything. No matter who you are.
And not many women are prepared to put work before their social lives. IMO, that is the crucial difference between men and women - in general.
I also think women are less inclined than men to give credit to other women....I've noticed many a time that a good idea coming from a man gets much more applause in a community of women than the same idea coming from a woman. It's sort of cute, really, but probably that type of competitive nature, again on a social level rather than an objective level, is part of what hold women back.
