This week on Mondays With Marlo, I discussed strategies for dealing with a sexist co-worker with feminist activist Gloria Steinem. Here are the strategies that she suggested:
- Reverse the man's behavior. If he comments on your body or your clothes, comment on his body and his clothes. Take away his power to define you.
- Substitute another group of people (nationality, religion) that he takes seriously, and ask him whether his remarks would be appropriate if they were aimed at that group.
- Call your supervisor and explain that the co-worker's behavior is interfering with your comfort and efficiency in the workplace.
