I’m reading a fictional book and in it is a woman who is the first to be a judge and how the people actually despise her for it (not what the book is about. Just a part of it)
It got me thinking. I wonder how the women who was the first to be a judge, police, army, pilot felt.
How much hate and abuse they must have got for going into “mans work”
I’m glad they did, because of them, we are able to work in what field we like

Google any career plus female plus sexual harassment and see how many hits there are;
