Casual sexism in the workplace or in any other place whatsoever is always a concern and even though that is changing in many ways, it is still a gradual process and still prevalent in many places.
Even the biggest A-list actresses face that and none other than actor Margot Robbie recently opened up on the same.
Robbie said in Glamour UK's January 2020 digital issue, "[Sexism is] naturally ingrained in people—even if you are the one who should be dictating the decisions—that they turn to the closest, eldest male in the room and direct the question at them. It's just an inherent thing everyone has got in their DNA."
As an example of how the sexist undertones emerge, Robbie told the magazine, "When people are asking a question and I have the answer, they so readily will turn to my producing partners who are guys and ask them. It's a finance thing, so I will ask the guy. And they are like, 'actually, she is the one with the answer, you should ask her!'"
The actor noted, "It's the societal construct we have grown up knowing."
"I think the interesting thing now is that everyone is so conscious of that and they often catch themselves. I think people want to embrace the idea of equality," Robbie told Glamour. "I think they are a little shocked they hadn't before, and they didn't have that mindset and weren't conscious of it."
"I would tell [17-year-old Margot], 'you are actually good enough,'" Robbie said in response to a question about what she would tell her younger self. "The biggest thing for me was I had this imposter syndrome. I still get it sometimes and think everyone will realize, and ask 'how did you get here? You are not good enough for this. Who let you in?' I would sit her down and say 'you are good enough; you are going to have to keep working really hard, but you can do it.'"
