I work in the web/app development industry. It is male dominated. I have seen lot of sexism in my career, but then I have in my everyday life as well. Just yesterday my middle aged next door neighbour Nigel was explaining I couldn’t possibly know what size screws were. Why Nigel? It it my bleach blonde hair? My fair skin which makes me look in my twenties (thanks mum & dad). Or is it my breasts.
It was the latter wasn’t it, let’s be honest.
I regularly, as many women, face everyday sexism, just like this.
But this weekend, I want to take a different approach.
I want to be thankful.
