Professional interviews often seem to be the hub of all casually sexist questions that women face, and we’re going to show you some of the wackiest ones! Read on…
It’s a fact that after you know what sexism is, you see that it’s everywhere. Like literally everywhere, even in the most unlikely places. I mean for a thing so prevalent as this, one would think it is the law of nature and must have been absolutely necessary for the survival of the human species. How would society function as we know it had it not been for these ‘conventions’ we love so much?
So naturally, now that women have pushed their way to the men’s traditional area of offices and professions after whining so much, it is only fair that we make it tougher for them to get in. That is the only justification I can make up for all the ridiculous stuff that women are asked about at job interviews (when they are not being barged into by ‘romantic boyfriends’ for proposals). If you know what I mean.
We at Women’s Web compiled some of the most wildly sexist things that women have been asked on a strictly professional, serious-than-death interview room which decides the next big step of their careers. Seriously though, when was the last time a man was asked when he was planning to get married or have kids in a job interview? Or for that matter in any interview ever?!
Catch that video and let us know what you think! And feel free to add on the Most Sexist Questions you have ever heard in an interview, in the comments below.
