MansplainingThis term you know designates the habit that certain men haveexplain to women what they know best or simply to demonstrate to them, all with a often condescending and paternalistic tone. Recently it was our dear Prime Minister Gabriel Attal who carried out a wonderful operation of mansplaining bursting onto the stage where Valérie Hayer, candidate for the European elections, was being interviewed.
THE maintenance, for its part, refers to the systematic and unjustified interruption of women by their male colleagues. According to a British study, in meetings, men take up 75% of speaking time. Furthermore, in meetings, a man interrupts a woman 23% more times than another male colleague.
