I am an engineer and every time I go into the field I get lectured about how to wear my hair and to be careful of my jewelry. I wear a wedding ring and sometime short earnings, and often wear my hair pulled back. I’ve never heard the men get lectured and be told to be careful and safe before going outside.

In a meeting, where I was the only women attending, I was hugged before and after the meeting by someone I had only met once. This man did not hug the other men that attended the meeting. It was incredibly unconformable and frustrating.
