Not just by the people in my personal life, but by the people in my professional life. There are times that working in a male dominated field becomes difficult in ways that cannot be expressed. It seems that I have to work 4 times as hard for not even a fraction of the recognition.
I do my job very well and it's clear by the reactions of the people I deal with and help that my efforts are appreciated by them. It just seems that my boss really doesn't notice my efforts as much.
Then again maybe I am being to sensitive. I am really quite good at my job and I am always impressing someone, even if it's not my boss. I get compliments from people above him all the time.
I am starting to wonder if he is sexist, I have reason to believe he might be, but that is for another story.
