Women in Advertising

For all who identify as women. What problems do you face in this male-dominated field? How can we empower one another? 💪

I have a kid under 1. I still nurse her and she prefers to be comforted by me for naps/bed. My SO and I are both wfh. We have a small house. Neither of us can get our work done. I. Am. Going. Insane.

May be a long shot, but is there a creative interested in being a mentor to a soon-to-be college grad in art direction/design that is trying to navigate all this crazy 🥺

Does anyone have experience in dealing with managers who constantly berate you and talk to you like you’re 5? It’s taking a toll on my mental health.

Are there any women here with PCOS? If so, how have you dealt with it in general? But more related to advertising, how have you proactively tried to minimize stress at work as to not flair symptoms?

My best friend is getting married & we cancelled the bachelorette party. Does anyone have fun ideas for a Zoom party? Trying to still give her a fun experience in spite of the circumstances.

Do you guys ever cry when you get unfair feedback/ comments from your CD? How do you deal? I’m an emotional person.

Me getting a promotion: should I negotiate? How do I negotiate? What if they say no? Male coworker who is more junior, did not get a promotion: I am absolutely going to ask for a raise. 😬😬😬😬

I was in a call with my CD and other creatives (all guys) and somehow they started joking about no sex with their wives. Obviously I felt uncomfortable. Is this inappropriate or am I being a prude?

Hi! If anyone has any time on their hands, do you mind looking over my resume and giving me your thoughts? This is the first time I’d be applying since I was a student and any advice means a lot

Ok, ladies. How do we feel about “Making the Cut” on Amazon Prime? Better or worse than “Project Runway”?

Really really struggling with my bipolar spouse. Feeling berated, belittled, and I can’t tell if it is all me or the illness. Nothing is stable and I feel I have to hold it together and keep it in.

How to set boundaries at work with the Covid campaigns? We’re already working long hours during the week. I really can’t take this on the weekends too. I know you’re supposed to ‘save your job’ but...

Recently turned 30 and I’m finally starting to see signs of aging around my eyes. What eye products do you swear by? Everything I’ve tried so far just makes them extremely puffy.
