So i became interested after a close friend told me i was one last night.
I'm not keen on several the descriptions in the article at all, and it is yet another box i would not like to be "put" in.
Link to article
"Achievement is the focus of alpha female's life; anything else is secondary. She does not obsess about relationships. She is dominant: if she married alpha male, there would be a bloodbath. Novelist Fay Weldon sees alpha female running corporations, paying little or no attention to the domestic sphere - which is where she differs from Superwoman: "Superwoman was everything man and woman wanted her to be: she did everything and was a good wife, earned a good salary and kept the carpets shampooed. Alpha woman wouldn't concern herself with housework: she would find someone else to whom she would delegate."
Going by the descriptions in the article i don't see much in common with myself. But i do see some.
Does anyone else identify?
Does anyone else see the "alpha female" in friends/family/celebrity?
What do you make of the idea of this?
I have some ideas but they are floating as yet. I shall add more later.
