that was the battle cry of those brave women to the next generation entering the workforce (me) They were ignored, passed over and eventually fired.
So we took it. And took it for granted that it was the price of entre to the mens club of the working world. I was in many a meeting, business trip etc where I was the only female. It was tough. And scary at times. Trapped in an elevator. Handed room keys in a hotel. Listening to lewd comments. (Early 80's)
My mother told stories of the 1950's as a secretary, she was "chased around the desk."
Women are coming out now because it seems they might have a shot at being believed.
Thank goodness that the younger generation doesn't seem to have these experiences.
