Sexism - It Goes Both Ways

I recently read an article regarding "Sexist Women Bosses," and what is key to point out is that "sexism is sexism," and it is damaging regardless of who is the recipient. Throughout my career, I've primarily been in male dominated companies, and I've had to manage many men, men older than myself, and men from cultures where women tend to be looked upon as inferior. I've always stayed confident and held true to my belief of equality, and not special rights while being conscious of practicing EQ and CQ.

Excerpt from the article:
"Given that so much sexism is benevolent, or unintentional, ending the cycle means paying attention, and recognizing that sexism is sexism and, in any form, is damaging to the idea of gender equity. It’s also about recognizing that the best workplaces are built on the ideals of hard work, talent, and dedication—three qualities that know no gender."
