There is also what my mother (early female politician) calls the "hazing period". The misogynists hate you period and are always hazing you until they become frightened of you. Then there are the flotsam who move with the tide -- whatever. Then there are your 'allies' who need you to prove you are as tough as the men AND that your allies are not cutting you any slack.

We are still in very much in the hazing period for female politicians as POTUS, CIC of the military.
