While completing an internship in the summer after my 3rd year of college, I was asked to take over a project from another intern. The other intern was male and had only finished his 1st year of college. At this time, we had only been working for about a month together. He frequently chatted with one of the other male interns, and was never too friendly to me. After asking him to send me the files, he said “are you sure you don’t want something easier?” I reacted pretty strongly by telling him no, this is the project I’ve been given and I can handle it. This was a wake up call for me that sexism in the workplace isn’t always in the form of an older male manager as it is typically thought of.
