THERE’S ONE ADJECTIVE THAT’S NEVER USED TO CRITICIZE MEN, YET IT SHOWS UP AT AN ALARMING RATE IN WOMEN’S PERFORMANCE REVIEWS.
Abrasive alone was used 17 times to describe 13 different women, but the word never appeared in men’s reviews. In fact, this type of character critique that was absent from men’s reviews showed up in 71 of the 94 critical reviews received by women.
Perhaps unsurprisingly critical feedback was doled out in a much higher ratio to women: 58.9% of men’s reviews contained critical feedback, while an overwhelming 87.9% of the reviews received by women did.
Not only did women receive more criticism in their performance reviews, it was less constructive and more personal.
