So at the corporate office where I work, someone decided to have a drinks for International Women’s Day (IWD). It is, after all, a Friday. Barely anyone turned up and when they did it was really for the drinks and nibbles. I had a conversation with the most inarticulate man (from my department - 80% men no less) I’ve probably met which went along the lines of:
him - so yeah what’s this women’s thing about
The problem with me trying to continue to educate him is that I would have been the only person in the room doing so. So I stopped because even amongst the women in the room no one was there for the day. I overheard one woman say “why did they have to say ‘women’s day’ drinks in the email?” *exasperated sigh*
Amongst my own dept, IWD was largely a joke, because joking about sexism is usually the norm in the Australian lifestyle anyway.
Such a downer to the day when the UN Women’s IWD breakfast was pretty good.
I need to get out of my workplace, it’s killing me slowly.
About It's Been a Blast!
All the way from Sydney, but not from 42 Wallaby Way because that place sucks.
