Freedom from sexism in the workplace

From the March 2017 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Recent news reports and articles about the sexism that’s still encountered by women in some situations remind me of discriminatory practices that I learned to overcome through relying on prayer and the teachings of Christian Science. 

My technical career began at a time when there were few women working in technical fields. Although equal opportunity for men and women was law, it hadn’t completely been embraced by some of the workers and managers. Human decency was expected, but workplace rules against sexual harassment hadn’t yet been written. Both men and women were learning on the job how to interact professionally with each other in constructive, meaningful, and respectful ways.

The ideas needed to forward our work were spiritual ideas, ideas not belonging exclusively to one individual.
