It also talks about the power of being more balanced as an individual in accepting your so-called "masculine" or "feminine" traits. It's not that these traits are actually more common in men or women, but that society and our relationship with our parents reinforce certain traits in our early-forming identities, and if those contradict our natural personalities, it can have negative side effects.
For men forced to repress their "feminine" side like expressing empathy, emotions, or forced to be more aggressive than they naturally are, if they are shamed by others for their "unmanly" behavior, the result can be toxic masculinity, a twisted version of masculinity in which violence, aggression and competitiveness are the yardsticks for success. Likewise, for women forced to repress their "masculine" side like hiding their intelligence, ambition or aggressive feelings, the result can be women who are catty, manipulative, using social power to maneuver or as weapons against other, being passive aggressive, policing other women, being seductive to control men, etc.
I also found it interesting that Greene describes masculine group dynamics, and it's pretty obvious that this is how the church operates:
This description is the main reason I did not join OW and haven't really wanted women to be ordained to the current PH structure. To me, the structure is toxic and goes against gospel ideals.“in a group setting the masculine style is to require a leader, and to either aspire to that role or gain power by being the most loyal follower. Leaders will designate various deputies to do their bidding. Men form hierarchies and punish those who fall out of line. They are highly status conscious, hyperaware of their place in the group. Leaders will tend to use some element of fear to keep the group cohesive. The masculine style of leadership is to identify clear goals and reach them. It puts emphasis on results, however they are achieved.”
By contrast, female group dynamics are very different:
That's not to say female group dynamics are perfect either, but our male organization could sure use more of this.“The feminine style is more about maintaining the group spirit and keeping the relationships smoothed out, with fewer differences among individuals. It is more empathetic, considering the feelings of each member and trying to involve them more in the decision-making process. Results are important, but the way they are achieved, the process, is equally important.”
