Where do I start? Like many others on this page, I’ve been touched and grabbed, in bars, at concerts, on buses, and simply walking down the street on one memorable hot day when a guy riding by on a bike grabbed my breasts when I was wearing a sundress. I’ve had a male professor tell me, as a math/comp sci major, that ‘girls’ didn’t belong in math class. I’ve dealt with mechanics who quote a higher price to me if I go alone to get my car fixed, so now I bring my large husband (who doesn’t even drive, but they speak to him and quote a lower price). But worst of all, I’m now in a profession that is over 80% female, but well over 50% of the top jobs are held by men. Sigh.
