Do you think women are disadvantaged in today's society?

In real life, I haven't faced prejudice because I'm a woman, but it's stories that I hear from others that has me thinking.

Is it hard for women to become CEOs and working in leadership positions? If so, what do you think the reason for that is?

Yes. Most definitely. I'm a woman in my twenties and I'm just not taken seriously. I'm more qualified and more experienced than most of the people I work with, but clients will ALWAYS turn to the men for help. It happens outside the workplace too, I get treated like a silly little girl. Most of the time, it's not supposed to be mean or rude, but it is incredibly patronizing.

What's your job R1? I'm a nursing student maybe that's why I don't feel disadvantaged. That field is dominated by women.
