I can’t help but think that 2017 was a year for the men.
The year was the year that the tech revolution was taking off, and it’s the year we finally got to see how the technology would affect women.
Women are still going to have to fight to be seen as equals, and the tech industry’s sexism has been a big part of that.
But 2017 saw the first real steps towards changing that, with the launch of the Lean In movement, and a host of social and political changes that resulted in a much better future for women.
The men, meanwhile, didn’t have to worry about how to be more like the women.
This year, they got to be the ones who have to deal with the repercussions of this change.
They’ll still have to learn to treat women with respect, but now they’ll also have to confront the challenges of sexism in their workplaces.
And yes, that includes having to deal directly with the sexist attitudes of your boss.
