They discriminate by leveling you lower than men, and it is very hard to change your level within first 2 yrs setting u up to get less pay and respect than male colleagues. My male colleagues are 10 years less experienced and make double my salary for the same job and performance after 6 years at google. Also, they do not understand women's health. I needed 4 months reduced time off for hormone therapy after miscarriages and it wasnt approved. My colleague left for 6 months to get transgender hormones. I support her change, but i was hospitalized twice, and we lost our baby.
