I personally don't know anyone who is raising her child to be submissive or passive-aggressive.
I think the problem is that girls don't see women in leadership roles or behaving in a powerful, independent manner. There aren't a lot of relevent role models for little girls.
I think if women felt more content and empowered in life, we wouldn't lash out at each other over such petty things and waste so much energy feeling offended and insecure over this or that minor thing.
Female ppl are wired a little different from male ppl, in general, and just aren't going to react as aggressively as men/boys in conflict situations...so when we do get mad it can come out in nonaggressive ways (passive-aggression, internalization, etc.)
