i'm not sure what we can do to change perceptions. i know that i work for several managers, 3 of whom are women, & they are way cool to work for. i think that part of the problem is that women have to strive so hard for the authority & respect that fall naturally to a male boss. therefore, women seem to fall into the trap of being "too serious" - yet if they weren't, they would get no respect at all. for instance, men generally can joke around & play a little bit w/out anyone questioning their competence. if women start to relax, they become "ditzes" & "bimbos", etc. it's a total double standard & i don't envy any of my bosses b/c i know they put up w/this every day. they are still awesome, tho! (i'm brown-nosing a bit - can you tell?)
