Woman Interrupted: Women, the Workplace & Inequality in Many Forms


Mid March - End of April 2018


Curated By Kaitlin Kehnemuyi

Designed by Veronica Black


Do you get 'emotional' after being asked to take the notes during the meeting because you’re the only woman? Are you 'sensitive' about being paid less than your male coworkers? Are you tired of having to fight battles for equality and respect? 


The #metoo and the #timesup movements have raised the issues of sexual assault, harassment, and inequality, while exposing what women often deal with in the workplace. Part of solving this inequality is having the conversations about childcare, health, and pay parity — things that will improve the workplace for everyone, not just for women.
