I believe that women need to learn to use three phrases, and I hope that my daughters have learned them as well:
- Please don’t interrupt me / I’m not finished
- I already said that, and
- I don’t need you to explain that to me.
But women can’t do it all themselves. So this is a great rule for you, meeting chair-person, to enforce.
