When I was a recent graduate from my master’s program and new as an engineer, I was the only woman on the team. I was insecure and my pride was in my engineering degree. But my manager repeatedly gave me writing assignments on top of the process work. The assignments consisted of bids, inter-office memos and proposals. It irked me and I started to hate that I was becoming the group secretary. I convinced myself that he was sexist. I said nothing for months and let it fester.
