I had a female boss who obviously and blatantly favored men. She marched in the Washington Women’s march with her pink pussy hat, then returned to tell me she thought “a man would be better suited for the job” I was interviewing people for. Every man in the company got better pay, more comp time, and more respect. I was extremely disappointed in this lack of support from a liberal woman. One of my co-workers, (a man) even said to me, “You know she’s going to let me have my way on this because she favors men.” After this experience, I hesitate to relegate men and women to broad categories according to gender.
