I think I have been very fortunate to work in teams where this hasn’t been an issue – I’ve always worked in industries that are largely male dominated so, if anything, women have tended to band together and very much root for each other.
Psychologically speaking, typical patriarchal systems can convince women that resources (in this case, jobs, promotions, opportunities) are limited – e.g. “there’s likely to only be one woman promoted, while the rest of the spots will go to men”, so we’re programmed to compete with each other for these spaces.
As I said, this hasn’t been my experience, but of course it does happen to lots of women.
