Goodbye, Good Little Girl Syndrome

The decades of the ad men weren’t pretty and it’s time women stopped trying to be “good little girls” in the office.

hildren, especially girls, have been raised by parents to believe in and practice what I’ve christened “The Good Little Girl Syndrome.” The name says it all and I dare think that I need to explain, but I will do that. We are, in fact, probably witnessing the death of that syndrome and we can find one sign of it in the #MeToo hashtag that is so prevalent on Twitter.
