Quotes

(5:56-6:25) “Being the only woman, I found myself sometimes having to listen to men say bad things about women while I was in the room. I was like, ‘Guys, I’m here. I’m a woman. Stop saying bullshit.’ And also I’d make them understand that I wasn’t weaker. I had as much potential as they did, so I should be included in higher-level conversations; I should be involved in meaningful projects. Don’t take it easy on me just because I am a woman.”

(12:54-13:05) “When I started to hear things that weren’t making much sense to me, things that I thought were unfair, I tended to speak up even if I wasn’t heard. And most of the time, I was heard.”

(21:18-21:28) “If you feel uncomfortable in whatever situation that you might be in because there are only men in the room or because you are feeling judged for being a woman, you need to build the courage to speak up.”
