2. Males with hearing problems tend not to hear higher pitched voices

Females with hearing problems have a harder time hearing male voices. I learned this from my father, who was hard of hearing beginning in his 50s.

As a young attorney, I recognized that older male judges were not always hearing me. I knew to enunciate and to look squarely at them, but also, pitched my voice lower as I learned to do when speaking to my father. I have an actual “official” voice for the occasion.

I saw older female judges get impatient with deep-voiced male attorneys. I don’t think they had a remedy.
