Being a woman, blonde, and relatively young (at least I look young), I have often entered situations in various orchestras where someone doesn't take me seriously until I play and "prove" myself. Most people I meet on jobs are very respectful but there have been instances where I have felt condescended to or brushed off at first. Please share your thoughts and experiences.
