I remember I was just out of college and I was only female manager at a sporting goods store. I wanted to move up to corporate office . My boss held manager meetings at a strip club , I wouldn’t go to the meeting. He then wanted me to meet with him at his home, I refused. I offered to meet him at a diner or a public place. I was told come over to his home or find another job. I told my Mom she told me that’s what I get for working in a man store. This was 1995 not 1950. I did find another job. Now that I’m a parent I would have supported my kid and encouraged her to speak up and contact corporate office.

Has anything ever happened to you?

I work in construction. So, yes. I've quit two jobs because if it. However, the last time I decided to start my own business, so it worked out for me, in an odd way, I guess.

Not at work, but yes in my private life it has happened a lot. I even got told I should be 'grateful for the attention'.

I have never been someone not to say something. Haha Usually bosses had my back. A couple times they didn't, but it turns out, they were the ones that gave me the kick in the butt to start my own thing. Now, I run the show. So, in a strange and backwards way, I almost have to thank the ones that let me down. It just gave me more drive and made me even more determined.
