Tripping the Prom Queen is an investigation of the
dark secret of female friendships-the deep vein of female
rivalry. Based on interviews with women across the social
spectrum, Susan Shapiro Barash has exploded the myth that
women are generally supportive of one another. In fact, the
competition between women is more vicious precisely because
it is covert. She tells us:
* Why women can't and won't admit to rivalry
* How women are trained from an early age to compete with
* In which areas women most heatedly compete
* How rivalry is different among women than among men
* The differences between competition, envy, and jealousy
* When competition is healthy and when it isn't
* Why women find it irresistible to "trip the prom queen"
* Useful strategies to stop the competition and forge a new
kind of relationship with other women.
Tripping the Prom Queen is an engrossing exploration
of bad behavior that all women will identify with, and a
beacon of hope for a better, more promising future.
