Tell Us The Most Sexist Comment You've Gotten At Work

"I was expecting a man." Um???

One of the struggles we face as women, even in 2022, is being taken seriously in the workforce.

Without even going into equal pay and the lack of women (and especially BIPOC women) in leadership roles, many women have to deal with sexist comments from their bosses, coworkers, and customers.

Maybe you work in service, and you've had to put up with sexist, infantilizing, or objectifying comments from customers, like "I bet you get the good tips with that outfit."

Maybe you work at a front desk, and your boss asked you to wear a little more makeup because you looked "tired" when greeting visitors.

Maybe you were told by a coworker that you shouldn't bother setting up stuff at your desk, because you'd probably get pregnant soon and leave the company.

Whatever inappropriate comments and questions you've received, we want to hear about them. Comment the worst things that have been said to you below, or submit them anonymously here, and you could be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post.
