Dear Circle of Moms:
I was harassed by a woman supervisor (single, nearly fifty, no children) for my decision to be pregnant. She lost confidence in my abilities and treated me as though I was incompetent once I became visibly pregnant. She was also joined by a co-worker who is in my age group (this co-worker although the parent of one child expressed disdain regarding having another). Long story short, I was ganged up on by a group of girls (disguised as grown women) and then fired. I am three classes shy of finishing my Masters. And I am trying to get past this, but it is difficult and if you've survived the aforementioned or, found ways to get past it, your advice would be helpful. I don't believe that a job or an employer should infringe upon one's reproductive rights, but I was told that this is the norm. And I am seeking to change it, so that my daughter doesn't have to go through the same thing.
