For those of you not familiar with the term, queen bees are women who achieved success in male-dominated environments and are obsessed with maintaining their authority. Okay, this makes sense if it were like, I dunno, 1997, but this is the 21st century.
Women should not feel the need to compete with each other! First off, when it comes to getting a college degree, women have closed, and surpassed, the graduation gap. You know what this means? There are more qualified women entering the workforce each year. This also means that there will be more women rising to supervisory positions in the upcoming years. Secondly, keeping another woman down is not going to keep you up. In the age of social networking and other digital technologies, making enemies is more likely to spread beyond the initial riff. In the famous words of Mr. Norbury (a.k.a Tina Fey), "You all have got to stop calling each other sluts and whores. It just makes it okay for guys to call you sluts and whores." -- Mean Girls. Not exactly what's going on here, but it's still relevant.
Come on, Ladies! Get your sh*t together and start helping each other for that eventual world domination we're secretly planning.
