Why don’t women speak out more against sexism in the workplace and demand to be treated the same as men? Because when women do speak out they will likely be accused of the following..
You are just playing the ‘gender card’:
“The day will come when you can no longer call the gender card or the victim card, and by pretending to be a victim the prime minister has demeaned every woman in this parliament”.
You are looking for special treatment:“We don’t wish to be treated as somehow less able or a victim of somebody’s spiteful words.”You aren’t tough enough for the job:
“The fact of the matter is if you take leadership you must exercise leadership and if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen”.You are undermining the sisterhood:
“We didn’t come here to be told that we could not do the job and needed to be treated differently”.
