There is a strong need for women to become more comfortable with their capacity to be aggressive; healthy discussion of aggression is a solution Rachel Simmons offers for resolving conflict between girls in this psychological aggression talk.

Simmons talks about the point she effectively made in her book 'Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls' -- that hidden aggression is a an epidemic. Simmons states that aggression in young girls is increasing and she says it is because women are not given the same outlet for aggression as men are. She also says that a large reason as to why girl have such difficulty articulating conflict is because they fear losing people from their lives.

In this psychological aggression talk, Rachel Simmons talks about noticing the universal pattern of overly passive aggressive behavior which is deeply damaging for young girls. She says that friendships play an important roll and influence on women's lives and being bullied by peers can be very psychologically damaging.

Confronting and dealing with aggression and conflict is the key to getting out of hidden aggression.
