Workplace norm

Monday through Friday, 8-5

"Young Lady," I hear

"Shh, while they talk"

Is my input not important?

 

"Young Lady," I hear

"Listen to the men speak."

Can I not speak as well?

 

I try to speak, they interupt.

When will my talk be good enough? 

I do not lack the knowledge

I only lack the gender
