Women exhibit reluctance in discussing their own accomplishments due to prevailing cultural norms that promote modesty. Instead, they tend to downplay their achievements while readily endorsing those of their peers. Prior research has already demonstrated that men are not subject to the same modesty norms that affect women. In fact, men who unabashedly boast about their accomplishments are often perceived as confident and competent. It is crucial to acknowledge that this circumstance cannot be attributed to women’s actions; rather, it emanates from our societal culture. Consequently, it becomes our collective responsibility to identify and implement strategies for modifying these cultural norms.
