For those of you who don’t think women go through this; it is true.
The harassment started for me USC School of Architecture with SOME not all my design professors. As a young architect it happened weekly, at IBM, in boardrooms, on construction sites. Being strong, being good, having opinions no differently than a man
got me labeled and sometimes the labels were exactly this. The culture was pervasive.
I also will tip my head to the men who pushed back with me and did NOT do this… managers who stood behind me, men who told someone to shut up. There were a couple
in each situation. But more stayed silent and in doing so nodded approval,
and one of them was the man I was living with, who soon got the toss.
