Why is the problem what you can't tell women rather than women being called bossy if they speak up and too quiet if they don't (which is entirely a real thing)?
It just reads like women trying to wall themselves off from criticism of any kind. As a former supervisor, there are absolutely situations where employees need guidance on how to behave, especially when it comes to interacting with clients (and it almost always requires some form of "tone policing"). Entry level employees usually don't come in knowing exactly how to behave in the new environment.
People dialing it up to 11 for every comment on a woman's conduct in the workplace are not contributing to a productive conversation.
