"It's natural to want the recognition yourself, but it's also important (and emotionally healthy!) to celebrate other women's successes rather than envy them, says Sharmin Tunguz, Ph.D., associate professor of psychology at DePauw University in Greencastle, IN."

Appearing on page 31 of the magazine and online via this link, the piece offers tips, including "offer compliments" and "befriend, don't belittle."102987
