From Speaking While Female

For the most part I feel okay about being a woman in a male-dominated workplace: I have colleagues who are sensitive and self-aware enough to understand my position, and they’re almost all trying really hard, but one thing I’ve found exceptionally difficult to combat is men taking credit for my work and ideas. It doesn’t matter that the men who do it tend to be weak, unimaginative, territorial shitheads – it still makes me want to explode with anger.
