There is inequality between men and women at work for a reason.
I’m going to talk about it and get real here. I’m going to share what it was like for me to report to a man who I believed to be a misogynist and how I handled it.

Before we dig deep into this topic, listen to this. In my home we celebrate Christmas and we have a pretty extensive Christmas village. When my mom learned of this she thoughtfully wanted to send us a piece to add. I loved the symbolism of this gesture, combining our 2 families.
Anyway, she is in another State so she mailed me the little toy village to us. When I opened the box it was surrounded by these 1950s and 60s magazines.
