I ask questions about IUDs on the women's fashion bowl ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I just trust the population on that bowl more than the general FB population, and I expect it's the same here as well.

If we are discussing women’s struggle in leadership positions, it goes beyond tips for promotion talks. It touches personal and professional relationships. I feel like I relate more to people’s problems on this bowl and that opinions shared are more helpful than on a random internet forum. We could also create a bowl dedicated to relationships...

Honestly female bosses is a group of women who are trying to move up and do well in the workplace and give each other advice. Part of that for some women includes maintaining a family and/or relationship(s) along with work. This is a common issue for working women. Please don’t police women in this community for trying to have it all

Maybe because humans are relational beings and we trust the opinions of those on this board.

It’s actually 9/10 prior posts that have to do with “relationships” so get your facts straight 😀 Cheers

I hear you. I honestly want to say here’s a place we can just talk about how we kick ass and take names. But unfortunately it’s not easy to do what we do AND be a woman and sometimes no one really gets that except our peers- (which of course we don’t discuss in real life because we’re too bay talking about how we kick ass and take names!) So enjoy this community of strong women who just *get you* and use it for what it’s worth!
