Why Female Lawyers Are Still Shamed for Caring About Clothes
Six months into my corporate law job at a boutique firm in Manhattan, I was working late one night when a partner came into my office and shut the door behind her. "I want to talk to you about your...
By Molly Lippincott

I know more and more women are breaking the glass ceiling, but again and again I am annoyed at how women are shamed for showing any hint of femininity in the corporate world. We are taught that to be successful we need to ‘think like a man’ while still having a functioning vagina for childbirth and for in case our senior partner hits on us. (No joke, I can’t even begin to tell all the stories from my female friends who have been sexually harassed by their bosses in big law firms). My law school is quite misogynistic and even women reinforce the idea that unless you repress your emotions and think ‘logically’ like a man all the time, you are weak. 

Do you know why I never even considered becoming a divorce attorney?
‘Because it’s beneath you?’
Because there are children involved. When people get caught up in divorce…they forget there are some things more important than money.

A really important part of communicating, is being able to say “I was wrong”. The lawyers say admit nothing, deny everything, and shift the blame to somebody else. And that is one reason Shakespeare was not always happy with them, I am sure. To avoid taking responsibility for one’s side of something is one of the ultimate killers in any relationship, personal or professional. In fact, it makes real relationships impossible.

When one person refuses to own something, true relatedness ends and managing one another begins. Your relationship has hit a wall. If you are in court and the goal is to have a winner and a loser, then you can understand why “lawyering up” might be some people’s strategy. But it should not be your strategy in life, either professionally or personally.

The degree to which you are not able to admit when you are wrong determines the degree to which you have a crack in the foundation of your whole life. Boundaries and the structure of the personality are based on secure lines of ownership of your own property. To be secure and to get good and strong, you have to own things that are on your property. Look at owning your thoughts, feelings values, desires, and the like. To own your weaknesses and faults, although not as tasty at first, is just as important to becoming strong. Do the math. If you do have a fault or weakness or make a mistake and you do not own it, you still have it. You will repeat it. It will occur again. You have seen this in people who cannot see their issues. They just stay stuck and those things never get better. Admitting quickly when you are wrong is energizing. It gives you a new path to go on and gives you solutions you actually have control of, like yourself.

Not admitting something externalizes the problem. And if it is external to you, you cannot do anything about it. You have just become powerless. You are stuck at that point and become a victim. “It is not me” means also that you cannot do anything about it. You are stuck.
