How do you deal with machismo at your work.
Idk if there's an english work that translates exactly to it, but its close to misogynist. I'm a lawyer, and I work at a firm, there are 6 male lawyers and there are two female. I'm one of them. In my department there's two guys and me and I constantly have to deal with what we call "micro-machismos" which are small things that can be considered misogynist, but not "big" enough to think to do anything about it. But... you know, they build up. I am a capable professionist but sometimes, like today, I just feel like I'm gonna explode against them... and that would not be good for my self-image, because "come on, it's not that of a big deal". I need advice. Also I'm sorry if I made any mistakes in my writing, english is not my first language. Thank you in advance!
