Whoa,

Things are really getting ugly. Men and women working separately, refusing to interact.

Metoo is destroying the fabric of society.

Metoo is destroying the fabric of society.

So women should have just kept their mouths shut, right?

I think women, especially, are craving safe spaces where they can go and be inspired and do really important work without interruption

Sounds plausible from an evolutionary standpoint considering this is how women have worked for millenia, apart from the past few decades.

I wonder how they treat transgender women who still have their male anatomy. Or for that matter, lesbians. I mean, in the case of the latter, there's still the possibility of sexual harassment, whereas with the former, she could be a transgender woman with male anatomy, who is also a lesbian.

Or should they stick to their own kind and work separately too?

Imagine the outrage if a men only workspace was opened.

Those connections help women support each other, battling feelings such as "imposter syndrome," where women question whether they have the qualifications to start a company or embark on a particular venture, Burton said.

It’s only prudent to question your capabilities if you are starting a company or undertaking any large scale venture. This not a gender-specific issue.

Plumbing repairs and house building? Or just looking for a ticket on the B Ark?

Sorry if I sound cynical, but I find it more inspiring when I see women driving buses or repairing cars at my local garage.
