That’s me and another woman on our staff, at least according to an old employee. And yes, it drifted back to me.
My first thought was, thank god! Thank god as in, this came from a former employee; reassigned to the workforce. Something wasn’t right there.
I’m a little pissed off.
But you see, I’m not an angry person – I’ve been called bitchy or bossy before (which I don’t mind), but not angry.
After raising my three girls in what I thought was a post-feminist era, having the good fortune to enter the tech field in the late nineties with a group of men and women who worked together without barriers, now – now in the 21st century, I’ve been awakened again to the ugly reality of sexism’s far reaching tentacles and finding out that we’re not where I thought we were.
