Dealt with sexism all my life.

Dealt with sexism all my life.

Despite coming from an equality-conscious family, I have experienced sexism in my personal and working life almost from day one. As a teenager I suffered domestic violence and emotional/psychological abuse at the hands of my first boyfriend. I was also subjected to sexist bullying at school. At work I have been sexually harassed, and in one instance it was actually insinuated by my boss that he might keep my colleague with the promise of my position because I would be 'having children soon'. I'm really lucky to have surrounded myself with wonderful people of all genders who live equality- but my experiences show that it the battle is far from won.
