As a Gen Y woman, I want to believe that gender discrimination is on the decline. However, my workplace expectations often do not match my workplace experiences. When this happens, I struggle with feeling "whiny" for pointing out gender bias. After all, my experience is so much better than that of my mother or grandmother at my age. The bias may be different but it's no less real. Just because the workplace is getting better, it doesn't mean that the workplace is gender neutral much less equitable. I've learned that one of the most important steps in addressing gender inequities is indentifying them and understanding their underlying factors.
