Women’s professional ambitions are often met by several hurdles like sexism, discrimination, and exploitation. For instance, a Twitter thread previously called out men who undermine women by flirting with them at work events, or how a pregnant woman was recently asked to finish a meeting despite going into labour at work.
A Redditor invited working women to talk about their experiences when their ideas were overlooked and how they dealt with it being passed on to someone else.
Many women shared their tricks of the trade:
1. Write and document everything, in the form of mails, self-reviews, etc.
2. Find allies in your team.
