1) Be a courageous and strong mature woman by appropriately taking action and responsibility.

2) Don't inappropriately play the victim card by cowardly passing off your faults on others. Work to fix what you messed up.

3) Check yourself, admit when you're wrong, apology, and show that you are truly sorry instead of focusing on winning an argument.

4) Pay your own way and stop freeloading off guys and your female friends, acting like someone owes you something just because you showed up.
EXAMPLE (a) - Party girl: "Yeah, I'll get my sister to do it. She ain't doing anything important."

Sister - "No. You need to woman up and take care of your kids."

EXAMPLE (b) - Woman #1: "They better not ask me to do the presentation. Not my fault we lost that account. I was on break."

Co-worker: "What are you talking about? Presentations are your job. You need to woman up and get your priorities straight.

EXAMPLE (c) - Boyfriend: "She said to me she "was angry" and "making sense just gets in the way".

Mutual Best friend: "Why did you say those awful things to him?"

Girlfriend: "Cuz he made me so mad and should've gotten there in time."

Mutual Best friend: "You need to apologize."

Girlfriend: "Why should I?"

Best friend: "C'mon girl. You made us late and wanted to go to the other store first. Woman up and apologize to him cuz you were way out of line."

EXAMPLE (d) - Woman #1: "I got this guy to get me something to eat and drink. And then I got him to buy me this."

Woman #2: "Girl, you're so silly. You got some money. When are you going to woman up and stop using people?"

Woman #1: "I wasn't using him. He wanted to do that on his own."

Woman #2: "Okay, so did you tell him, 'no, I have my own money and can take care of it myself?' Wait a minute. you don't drive. So how did you get to my house when the buses don't run out here at this time? Mm-hm, just like I said. You need to woman up."
