I married into a progressive family. I completed my studies and made my career after I got married. My family gave me immense support in the face of resistance from others. In fact, my husband often gets criticised for having a ‘rebellious’ wife. He gets pulled up for supporting me.”
Adding that casual sexism is present at every level of management, she said,
When we see a man and a woman together in a corporate set-up, we assume that the woman is junior; the one less capable. We still feel that critical meetings cannot be held in the absence of a man. I have met men who wouldn’t discuss finance or politics with me just because I am a woman. Most times, there is only one woman in a room full of men. The challenges for women in the workforce especially in managerial positions are endless.”
