Marlow Stern wrote an article regarding Donald Trump’s attitude towards women. His article shed light on sexist comments perceived to be women bashing. Displays of misogyny include such comments on social media from Donald Trump:

Newsweek published an article capturing what Silicon Valley thinks of women. The article captured the attitude among a culture of men that disrespect and objectify women on a regular basis.The article provided information about the workings of Silicon Valley:
Google “Silicon Valley” and “frat boy culture” and you’ll find dozens of pages of articles and links to mainstream news articles, blogs, screeds, letters, videos and tweets about threats of violence, sexist jokes and casual misogyny, plus reports of gender-based hiring and firing, major-league sexual harassment lawsuits and a financing system that rewards young men and shortchanges women.
There was the young executive of a company valued at $250 million who got up in front of an audience at a conference billed as diverse and joked about “gang-bang interviews” and how he got his start by sending elusive CEOs whose attention he needed “bikini shots” from a “nudie calendar” he’d made of college women. ………………………

Women have worked hard to break glass ceilings and push themselves to achieve greatness. Unfortunately there are men that still feel it is appropriate to flirt when conducting business, objectify women when it comes to business, and operate as if women are stupid and incapable of understanding business concepts. There are men that believe you can tell a woman anything and they are supposed to accept your thoughts as if God has spoken.
Women demand and command respect in the workplace and when conducting business. Women should be taken seriously. Women are capable of building businesses, leaders providing insightful direction to others, and have earned the respect that they rarely receive by their peers. So to all those that believe that women are just show pieces, pretty objects to stick by your side, useless other than for pleasure-wake up. Business is business. Last time I checked Universities aren't in the business of handing out degrees and certifications-they are earned.
