As part of a workshop in my master’s program, our study group addressed the question of what needs to change to get more women in leadership positions. The workshop was also attended by high-ranking representatives from the business world who were invited as experts on the subject. While I was presenting our study group’s results in English, I was interrupted several times by the male professor leading the seminar and the male business representatives. Instead of discussing the content or asking serious follow-up questions, they made what they perceived as jocular remarks. In response to our comment that women often take on the ‘burden’ of care work, a business representative butted in to say, “Women just have to do a better job of selling their partners on the children and the associated housework and child-rearing work, and then they’ll be happy to do it.” Rather than intervening or taking a stand, the professor leading the seminar simply laughed along.
