Ghanaian Lawyer and entrepreneur Sandra Ankobiah has revealed the sexist treatment she sometimes receives in her line of work as a lawyer.
Speaking as a panel member at this years’ Glitz SHE Summit on the topic ‘BEYOND GENDER’, Sandra disclosed that there have been some legal cases which are handed to her male counterparts on the assumption that she’s a female and might not do a better job.
She stated: “Unfortunately for me, in my field of work women still experience gender bias (women lawyers) and I have had my own share.
Sandra who doubles as the PRO of FIDA, revealed how she handles such situations.
I’ve had instances or moments of sexism and I have instantly dealt with them because I feel my capabilities are way more than my sexuality.
And so I have always found a way of going about it and dealing with it.”
