    And I said exactly that in a comment further up-thread. "Difficult" women are "pushy" and "crazy" and get called "bitch." "Difficult" men are just "demanding," "domineering," etc.

    People may bitch about mean male bosses, but there often isn't the tone of unpleasantness that surrounds a female acting the exact same way.

    Now, to be fair to those staffers, I don't know exactly what they went through. But telling us that she was hard to work with doesn't tell us that she was a bad person by any stretch and is hard to differentiate from just that run-of-the-mill sexist double-standard you rightly bring up.
