116 Women in Male-Dominated Fields

Subscribe to the Podcast!

“Empowered women, empower women.”

We’ve come a long way baby… and there is farther to go. When it comes to gender equality, the pace of change is slow. If you are a woman in a male-dominated field, the pace of change can feel glacial, and at times, as if it will never come. 

For too long, anger has been the moral property of males. When women are angry it is a warning of indignity, threat, insult, or harm.  However, expressing this anger may get you dismissed or labeled as “hysterical”. 

So what does a strong woman in a male-dominated field need in order to thrive? Tune into today’s episode and find out!

What you’ll hear on today’s episode:

  • Entitlement and action
  • Subtle (and not so subtle) gender bias
  • Stereotype driven expectations
  • Self-doubt
  • Expressing anger
  • Peer support
  • Mentorship
