    I'm sorry.

    Will you forgive me?
    You are merely the victim of socialisation in a patriarchal society, so I cannot place the blame solely on you, I suppose. :hmmm:

    What is this thread about?! I'm worried. I'm leaving the City to get a degree at 25. I'm female. I've a lot of experience. Ask questions if you like.

    I am a male, but I am going to reply as I believe your post is sexist.

    Investment Bankers do many different things. The investment banker acts in a capital markets advisory capacity to corporations and governments,rather than dealing directly with individual investors. Investment bankers help their clients raise money in the capital markets, provide various financial advisory services, and assist with mergers and acquisition activity.
    Yes, it's not a single role and is often applied incorrectly by the media. It is not a job title.

    If they really are that sexist, then what a waste of oxygen.

    Claiming this thread for your own like a typical man and thus reinforcing centuries of subjugation I could dismiss, but this? Consider yourself unforgiven, you savage.

    Not only that, but you're making out like green tea isn't normal. Just because it's herbal doesn't mean it doesn't have feelings. #stopgreenteacyberbullying2k16

    :laugh: Lol this is hilarious!

    And because I've been completing my feminist criticism essay all day it feels like it's me who has typed it out.

    Oh my gosh,I'm so sick of the words "subjugation" "marginalisation" "subordination". I want to rip them out of the dictionary at this point.

    I'd assumed it'd been prompted by someone OP had talked to dating someone female who didn't know what investment banking was.

    Reading over the OP again, though, it does come across as quite patronizing (especially the "without Googling" part).

    I found that it came across really sexist and patronising. That isn't me being "sensitive", it honestly came across that way.

    a) I'm the only one here that likely knows what C&B is / has been there, so your reference is going to go over the head of most people here
    b) Y so critical?

    Not all but many. It gets worse...I left a job as a sales trader once and had to sign a document where I promised to never say a negative word about the firm....I was severely sexually harassed during my employment there...also, I never recommend them as boyfriends, they have far too many opportunities to get themselves into trouble. I get the impression this thread has something to do with dating IB's???? So there's my advice OP.

    seems like he feels women, without even knowing what i.b. is, complain about not getting into the field as much (they might complain and they don't get employed as much i guess). And perhaps it caused an awkward hilt in the convo during a date.

    my guess :holmes: lol

    lol you feminists....you never pass up an opportunity to get mad over nothing.

    If you bothered to read the OP, it's aimed at women because the reason I am asking has to do with dating, and given I am a heterosexual male, I date women.

    The "without googling" part is so I can get an answer based on your actual knowledge, rather than you just googling it and regurgitating the info here.

    It is you.

    Ffs i just make a thread asking women if they know what investment banking is, and suddenly its like Germaine Greer and Emma Watson declaring war on men everywhere :lol:
