Black and brown women and workplace stress regarding their ability to "measuring up."
"According to the study, professional women of color are affected by an 'emotional tax,' which is 'a heightened experience of being different from peers at work because of your gender and/or race/ethnicity.' In turn, they constantly feel undervalued, singled out, and 'on guard in work environments. Feeling on guard also compels women of color to feel the need to outwork and outperform their colleagues."

"Kieran Snyder, cofounder of Textio, applied linguistic analysis to performance reviews, and she found that when women challenge directly— which they must do to be successful—they get penalized for being “abrasive.” (That word actually comes up verbatim a lot.) The “abrasive” label gets placed on women by other women as well as by men."
"In a new study published in the peer-reviewed journal PLOS ONE, researchers from the University of Miami and Duke University argue that a common type of speech known as “vocal fry” can hurt a job candidate’s prospects, especially a woman’s."
"When evaluating a job candidates, participants preferred normal-voiced women 86 percent of the time, and normal-voiced men 83 percent of the time. Vocal fry also appeared to most negatively affect the trustworthiness score."
