I have been going to work the past couple of days despite being quite sick with a fever. Since we are in the middle of an important project, and it Iwas a ”all-hands on deck” situation, I decided to work regardless.
After a meeting with a senior figure (male) from the company, and as all of the attendees left the meeting room, I happened to mention that I wasn’t feeling too well. The senior man went on to tell me ”at this point in history, we do not need more women martyrs such as yourself. You are all the same.”
Oh how I wish someone from HR had overheard his comment (which is one of the many he constantly shares).
