She said: “When you are meeting new people for work and talking to them, there is always that…Not worry of what they are going to think of you but more internal, where I feel like, Oh, we need to prove ourselves. Especially because in the space that we are in, it is largely dominated by men.”
“So whenever we are put in the spotlight, talking to a vendor or a doctor, all of us have been in situations where we are talking to somebody, most likely a man, who is mansplaining and talking to us in a very condescending manner.”
