How many women here have witness real sexism (subtle or blatant) in the a workplace?
I certainly saw subtle sexism at a former workplace, but wondering how prevalent it is.

    Not a woman here but I have seen sexism by a woman against a man in the hiring process. Is this pole addressed to women only sexism in itself or do you really just care how many women it affects at this point and will do another one for men later. :) let the bashing begin.

      Still harassment based on gender identity, which is a protected class in many cities that are tech hubs. Let me know if there's anything else I can help with.

    I've seen blatant sexual harassment from a female manager to her report. He left the large org entirely. I see subtle sexism from male leaders toward women everyday. For the male ICs there seems to be a "you remind me of myself when I was young" and pride in developing them where women are given the housekeeping tasks and steadily diminished.

    It happens all the time. People don’t take women as seriously. They immediately only talk to the man.

    'how many women here'. Good example of subtle sexism.

      Asking the obvious is sexism? We know that men outnumber women in the tech profession

      Thanks. It is definitely prevalent along with ageism and cultural cliques.

    woman here. in SV for 10 years. the vast majority of the sexual harrassment claims I've seen have been desperate women looking for money and attention.

    I have never seen a single case where there is something truly wrong and a woman has been wronged.
