According to the recent study, some men report feeling anxious when the achievements of their female counterparts are highlighted.

The research, published in the journal Basic and Applied Social Psychology, reveals a major gap in how men and women view female success. In a survey given to American college students, young men reported high levels of anxiety after reading census data that showcased the gains women have made over the past 40 to 50 years, like graduating from college at higher rates than men and excelling in historically male professions.

Not sure what point this study is trying to prove, but how are we supposed to progress as a society if women are constantly told to keep their achievements to themselves for fear of bruising a bunch of male egos?
