Sexist jokes are hardly surprising in any career – but there is no denying that women get the worst of it.

Case in point, being Charlotte Knowlson who woke up one fine morning to go to work only to be faced with two men busting out what they must have thought were funny jokes about Knowlson’s abilities based on her gender.

And lads? Seriously, stop living in the 20’s.
