Being in a world that is still more for men is hard to deal with. I never thought I would feel this way in the year 2020 but here we are, it's very difficult to think that in 2020 we would still be fighting to be recognized as equals. I work in the IT field and am working on getting a degree, but I am still not recognized as someone that knows how to repair software and hardware best way to prove this is to tell the story of how 2 guys got hired over me for a position that I am more qualified for because people liked them more. Even though people didn’t like them more my old manager just happened to still work at my old store and decided they still had hurt feelings and make it harder for me to find a job. This is kind of a lesson about watching what you say about people they don’t know. The only reason I can speak on any of the people that I work with is because I have sat there and listened to everything that comes out of their mouths about themselves and about other people

Wondering if I’d Get There Quicker If I Was A Man: Life and Times as a Woman in The Entertainment Industry
Throughout my journey into adulthood, I have grown into my own opinions and thoughts about what it means to be a woman in society. In my personal life, my career, and my education, I’ve had to do what I call double dutch; where I have to cater to the standards and roles that society and the patriarchy, in particular, have set for me.
Misogyny. Even the sound of it is unpleasant when you say it. However, you can’t fully imagine how unpleasant this word really is until you have experienced the type of situations where it is applied. Here I will be sharing examples of what it’s like for a woman to work in a misogynistic business based off of situations I have experienced, or witnessed. As you read I Would appreciate it if you would respect that these are real situations that have happened to real women, and not to belittle or dismiss them.
Being a tradesperson in the heavy vehicle transport industry as a female is a factor that I will not prioritise while sharing my experiences of work and the world, for reasons you will soon understand, but I cannot deny its influence on my experiences – and it might not be in the ways you’re expecting.
As a working woman, it is really hard to be feminine and soft at your place of employment. It some times feel like you have to take on very masculine energy just to keep up and stand in your place.
As the world keeps spinning and one or two cars buzz by, what is the best way to remember the amazing women who make other women? Well I have a quote that I made up. Would you like to hear it? Of course you do, well it goes like this, "Beauty is just a mask you hide behind but the true beauty is you're creative and you're imagination and how you bring it to the world". The wonderful woman who inspires me to be a creative and out of the box is my favorite actress Meryl Streep. She inspired me to be an actress myself and I'm very passionate about it and I know I have what it takes to be one.
I have been in the workplace for over forty years, I have been sexually harassed and discriminated against more times than I care to remember. Who hasn’t right? The only thing new here is that my perpetrators were other females. I know right. We don't typically hear this. In the workplace, it's usually accusations from a female against a male counterpart. I am here now to say that sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace is a two-way street, equal oppportunity offence. Over the years I have felt harassed and discriminated against many times, and yes I was harassed because I was female. My harassment came from the hands of other women. I have been victim to bullying, conspiring, gossiping, isolation, control, betrayal, withheld opportunities, right down to termination.
We live in a day when women are struggling. They are fighting, tooth and nail, to prove something, to this world, and to themselves. We are living in a world, where the woman of old are looked down upon, considered as weak, second rate, hiding in the shadows of men.
I never had a BIG WHY.
Or rather I never asked myself "What is my life's purpose?", "Why am I even here?"
Like many women, I got caught on the treadmill of life, I followed a path that had been laid down for me by society, my parents, peers and friends.
