Asked, “As businesswomen, do you ever suffer in your workplace?” They replied:

I am a Marketing Manager: I was told I earned my position because of my beautiful face. And, that I should get married as soon as possible. Also, if I wanted to get a promotion, I would have to give up having a baby for three years. Or else, just hand in my resignation and take care of my baby at home. I would hear snide remarks like, “Women drivers are dangerous on the road,” or “Who are you trying to seduce with such a low neckline?”

I am a Financial Manager: I asked my staff to revise a report seven or eight times because I wanted to give them a chance to correct their mistakes. It has no relation to my menstruation cycle or my sexual life.

I am a taxi driver: When customers order my car and see my profile photo, they cancel their orders. Maybe they think it is too dangerous for a woman to be driving?

I am an office worker: Once, a condom dropped out of my handbag. I picked it up immediately, but I can still hear my colleagues saying I’m a promiscuous girl. The truth is that I only have one because of how often I get sexually assaulted. I’m just trying to protect myself.

Despite suffering so much criticism, I have proved to everyone that I can be successful. I hope that all women can live life to the fullest. We all have the right to make our lives amazing!
