when I started to experience some scary sexism, the -send you angry sexual messages and follow you home- type.
The myth of the ‘cool tech girl’

Hey Sarah, really appreciate your piece (especially as a woman working at a mostly male technology firm). Just want to be clear that these examples don’t constitute sexism, but straight up harassment. I would hate for someone currently on the receiving end of these behaviors to read this and think what they’re experiencing is systemic sexism that can’t be addressed without the full company or industry going through an overhaul. Would you consider adding a footnote making that distinction? Totally fine if not, but just a thought to ensure anyone experiencing this knows these behaviors warrant serious action. Thank you again for your thoughtful and important piece! — Marnie
