Read studies about ambition.
There have been numerous studies conducted by leading research institutions exploring the perception of ‘ambitious women’. These studies show that culturally, ambition is often lauded in men and criticized in women. In fact, women are so astutely aware of this bias that they go to great lengths to hide their ambitions and drive, particularly when interacting with men.

- Howard versus Heidi; Columbia University’s study on the negative connotations that surround successful women.
- The price of seeking power – a look into the backlash female politicians face.
