If you don't think what Hillary is saying about misogyny and sexism hear this actual event in my

workplace.

Without going into much detail, two second tier managers were up for promotion (gov't). On male, one female. Female had twice the responsibility and had actually trained the other contender three years previously. Supervisor responsible for awarding the promotion told the female that her work was above reproach. However he was awarding the promotion to her male colleague because he "had a family to support."

Ok, let me add here that the female was the mother of three children ages 5-14. I guess she wasn't supporting them?

1. That is horrible.

It shouldn't have happened.

2. I wish i could say I was horrified that this is still happening.

But this is what i experienced nearly all my career. Including being told that the man was going to get the position because a) he had a family support (my 3 didn't count?) b) clients would expect a man c) women couldn't commit themselves to a career like a man could.

Nonetheless, I persisted.

5. That rationalization was debunked in the 70s

she needs to go to the EEOC. NOW.
