I have a review team (very wise to ensure any company-branded communication is high quality) and the one woman commented on my choice of words, “You would never say that about a man. That’s why this needs to go – it’s sexist and belittling; kind of a verbal pat on the head.”
I was taken off guard when I read through the edits. I was praising this woman that I really admire and essentially, all other working mothers reading this article. Crazy multi-tasking every day and night, I say busy doesn’t even begin to cover it.
Maybe I look at the world through rose-colored glasses. I went to an all-girl’s school where you were taught empowerment, I work in a woman dominated field so maybe I don’t come up against sexual discrimination that occurs in other industries and I truly believe that any person can achieve goals they set forth.It’s all about confidence. Look at Margaret Thatcher, Maya Angelou and Sandra Day O’Connor.
So I ask you, do you feel this was a sexist statement?
