24. I'm too young to have experienced any of this

but I really appreciate hearing what things were like for women older than me.

We can't ever forget this.

(A quick story from my mom: she applied to be a secretary at an engineering firm, and during the whole interview the men cursed and used raunchy language, and they said at the end of the interview that they wanted to see if she could take it. I don't think that would ever happen today. At a different company, when an important client flew out for a meeting they would take the client out to dinner and hire an escort to be the client's date. Both of these were in the early 1970s.)
