“An employer who objects to aggressiveness in women, but whose positions require this trait places women in an intolerable and impermissible Catch-22: Out of a job if they behave aggressively and out of a job if they do not.” Price Waterhouse v. Hopkins, 490 U.S. 228 (1989) Female lawyers often find themselves navigating the tricky situations that require strong communications skills, such as advocating for clients while feeling societal pressure not to be overly aggressive; overcoming gendered communications habits that undercut authority; and juggling the personal with the professional.
