Totally need a Berlin-version of this post! I very rarely order clothes online because of sizing issues (and because I’m lazy and don’t like sending things back!) but reading this makes it sound less daunting, more fun :)
Wow, Abbie. That gave me the chills! (in a good way) I’m a woman in STEM myself and I’ve been so focused on fighting my own battle within the tech world lately that I haven’t stopped to think about what this hyper emphasis on the tech world means for professions where women outnumber men. Thank you for opening my eyes that little bit wider.
I can relate to a lot of this, especially the feeling of being ‘adequate’ and unsure of whether I’ll be able to find a job of a similar level after I quit. I still live with that fear but at least I’m facing it head on now!
