"I was told [the job] was going to my female co-worker, and it enraged me. I thought, 'This isn't how it's supposed to go. I expressed myself in the masculine...and you gave it to a woman.'" - Benjamin DeBoer
"I think it's very easy for men left alone without any women in a group to have a boys' club environment...and maybe there is a young man who feels uncomfortable with that but he doesn't feel empowered to speak up." - Erik Michaels-Ober
In this episode two men share their views on women and men in the workplace. One is straight, one gay, one works in tech and one in the arts.
We talk about how gay men can be sexist too, why society values masculine qualities over feminine ones, and what one company, SoundCloud, is doing to increase the number of female engineers who work there (including making its job descriptions less exacting).
