Oh, I've learned so much over the last year. So very many profound things. My pores ooze insight.
Here’s a fact: I have three regular part-time jobs now, and the reason I have each one of them is because of a white man. That may or may not have been the person who hired me (although in two cases it was), but my point of entry into every position was a white male.
What am I supposed to learn from that? That the patriarchy rules everything? That women who are in positions of power should do more to promote women climbing up the ladder? That sexism is rampant, and the feminist battle isn’t over yet?
I guess I could.
