“Was the only woman at a Zoom meeting. When the question was raised about who’d take notes, I did not respond. It was asked the 2nd time, to which I responded: ‘I am resisting the life-long conditioning of saying yes and giving you gentlemen a chance to take notes.’ Was I rude?” — Helen Hockx-yu
About: I was a newspaper reporter for 14 years, most recently at the Minneapolis Star Tribune. I explained why my family left Minneapolis here. Now we live just outside Chattanooga and I work on Scuffed News, a project that either succeeds by July or will have to be abandoned. This is my newsletter.
