    Would you say this is true? That stubborn men are seen as strong but stubborn women are classed as *****es?

    I do notice it at work sometimes particularly among women if you get a male manager who asserts themselves/tells someone off colleagues will just laugh a little/accept but but if it's a female manager she gets talked about a lot. Or maybe I'm seeing things wrong.

    I don't really notice it tbh, there a lot of female managers/executives where I work and they're well respected.

    I think it obviously depends on the person too some people are just liked more than others even if they act the same way.

    I would view it no differently provided the same behaviour is exhibited in both cases. It really depends on the definition of "stubborn".
