Why Women Are Their Own Worst Enemies!
Brandon N Kelly
Why Women Are Their Own Worst Enemies!TM is the book your cooler older sister
would have given you if she actually liked you. The author and feminist, Brandon
Kelly, examines why women are still not rulers of the free world or at the very:
least why they are still not earning as much as their colleagues of the male
persuasion. The author outlines "areas of opportunity" a term used often in
corporate America, a world which Brandon occupied for 13 years, which women
must revisit in order to assume their rightful place as rulers of the known
In an observation on the slang terms used to define women she concludes the
"What's humorous to me about using "bitch" as an insult is that it clearly
illustrates just how marginalized women really are; for this singular insult
stands to throw us out of the human species altogether, and quite literally,
to the dogs."
Traversing such topics as intra-female competition, to the overemphasis on
the opposite sex, and not standing up for yourself at work, this book examines
the gambit of potential pitfalls facing womankind which singe-handedly stand
to hold her back from her true potential.
In Brandon's analysis of what it's like to work for a woman, she asserts:
"If you've never worked for an angry or a jealous woman then you have
never truly experienced the full plethora and bouquet of the working experience."
In a humorous yet biting tone, Brandon engages the reader in a dialogue which
highlights just how preposterous many of the scenarios women either create for
themselves, or find themselves in and how most can be surmounted. These trends
are outlined in an essay format and ask the reader to explore these concepts
and determine whether or not they themselves need to improve upon them or risk
forever remaining the "weaker sex".
