PART II: The Queen Bee Syndrome

TASA ID: 10544

Queen bee syndrome was first defined by G.L. Staines, T.E. Jayaratne, and C. Tavris in 1973. It describes a woman in a position of authority who views or treats subordinates more critically if they are female. This phenomenon has been documented by several studies. In another study, scientists from the University of Toronto speculated that the queen bee syndrome may be the reason that women find it more stressful to work for women managers; no difference was found in stress levels for male workers. An alternate, though closely related, definition describes a queen bee as one who has succeeded in her career, but refuses to help other women do the same.

TASA ID: 1220

Expect to be inundated with a sea of paperwork and documentation, some of which may have nothing to do with the discovery for your particular case, client or circumstances. Defense counsel is well aware that some attorneys are not familiar with the day-to-day operations involved in child welfare and perhaps as a strategy will seek to waste time or distract attention to important detail by “fogging” the field of discovery with peripheral or non-essential documents. Being able to navigate through the “fog” is essential to efficient use of resources. Knowing how a county child welfare agency operates is as important as understanding what they do.

There were a total of 208 persons that committed chemical suicide in a three-month period alone. They did so by following instructions posted on various Japanese websites that describe how to mix bath sulfur (bath salts) with a toilet bowl cleaner to create a poisonous gas (H2S). One site goes so far as to include an application to help calculate the portions needed of each ingredient in order to correctly fill a rooms volume with the deadly gas. It also has a downloadable PDF consisting of a ready-made warning sign to alert neighbors and emergency workers to the deadly hazard.

Backstory: As publishing companies feel increasing financial pressures and pressure from other media competing for leisure time, dollars, more and more editors are being let go. There is no corresponding diminishment of manuscripts flowing into those companies.
