“The View” co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin accused her fellow co-host of “attacking” her during a discussion on “toxic femininity.”
The Monday panel discussed how women often put one another down in the workplace and other outings, such as being told to “act like a lady.” Griffin said that women can be “each other’s worst enemies,” despite having made great progress. Co-host Ana Navarro then took a jab at Griffin for having formerly worked alongside Kellyanne Conway during former President Donald Trump’s administration.
“Some of the worst bosses I’ve had have been women and sometimes colleagues in the workplace who are women…” Griffin said.
“That’s what happens when you work with Kellyanne Conway,” Navarro interjected.
“I mean, I can’t really get a word in without you attacking me,” Griffin hit back. “So I wouldn’t say this is totally different. This isn’t a totally different environment of women supporting each other.”
Griffin said women “have a duty” to support one another even if the fellow women around them do not reciprocate. Juju Chang added that women’s hostility is due to jealousy, but ensured that she has been supported by women and that “toxic masculinity” is the real issue holding women back.

Griffin then praised co-host Whoopi Goldberg for supporting her female colleagues on the show due to her success. Navarro added that being an alumni of an all-girls school instilled confidence in her that women can be anything they aspire to be, but then criticized women who do not encourage and “pull up” others to their level of success.
