As most of you know women are still paid 83 cents for every dollar men earn, but unfortunately the gender pay gap is just one of many problems women face daily at work. Misogyny, mansplaining, prejudice, stereotyping… they are all alive and well.
A couple of days ago one video stood out on TikTok with more than 4M views. In it, Katie Tucci, a 30-year-old Juris Doctorate graduate with specialization in cryptocurrency regulation and financial technology shared some interesting tips of how to make men take her seriously at work. Her outburst was inspired by a previous chat with a male member of her family. They went into a deep conversation about what her daily life and how she had to learn to stand her ground and make her male colleagues take her seriously.
“Y’all wouldn’t believe the stories I could tell that have forced me to learn this stuff.”
Check out her video below:
We hope that this advice from Tucci will help all women who are not taken seriously at work. “It is very easy to have your self-confidence damaged by overbearing colleagues who refuse to acknowledge your work. Just because no one is listening doesn’t mean you’re wrong, even though it might feel like that,” she told Bored Panda.
