Throw it back at him later. Straight up sexist, especially if you really, truly kept it professional.

Thanks for the comments! To answer YES it was absolutely professional. The statement came as a blow, exactly because I made my points calmly without so much as raising an eyebrow let alone my voice.

How do you politely push back on being designated to take meeting minutes? I'm not the most junior person but probably the most organized one. Our team is going through some transitions and the new MD just suggested that I can do the team meeting deck and minutes going forward.. I'm trying to get promoted and this seems like a step down.. He likes me and likes that I'm organized and probably suggested my name coz he trusts me.. So not sure how to push back without sounding rude or arrogant..
