But in the past 7 years, I can’t recall a single woman that has been promoted over me. Only men. It’s happened 3 times. The number of projects and specializations is something we can all look up for ourselves and our peers. And they publish promotion data yearly. So I was able to show this via data. Leadership is now ignoring me. What would you do?

Yes, they are the ones gaslighting and ignoring me. I haven’t yet taken this to any male leaders.

Friend of mine took me out for dinner, and on the car ride back I casually suggested we stop for ice cream. He raised his voice “I have things to do, we can’t just do this.” And immediately apologized. I shut down when men raise their voice and felt disrespected, but I didn’t want to be hostile and argue about it with him in the car, so we rode back in silence. I also don’t know how to (or if I should) bring it up since we aren’t dating. How do you address this (or do you just let it go)?
