Summary/Abstract: Queen Bee Syndrome is a concept that was first used in a study investigating women's emancipation in the 1970s. This concept, which takes its metaphorical root from the fact that the queen bee reigns in a beehive in nature and maintains her power for a long time, is used to explain the behavioral and psychological pressure that a woman in managerial position who is at the center of today's organizational behaviors exerts against other women who are her subordinates. The aim of this study, in which the conceptual background of the syndrome, queen bee behavior patterns, causes, dimensions, results, features and prominent researches on the subject are presented systematically, provides information for researchers who want to make detailed readings on the subject. In this context, a literature review has been conducted with the keyword queen bee syndrome, and a systematic conceptual study was created by collecting information from the secondary data obtained.
