Why do Women feel like second-class citizens?

Maybe the phrase ‘second class citizens’ is not quite accurate, but when talking about how many women feel, the description works.

So many I talk to feel inadequate, undervalued and that their opinions are always considered last.

Even supposedly successful women who lead Organisations struggle with self-confidence and backing themselves at times.  An example is a woman I coach.  Capable, strong and seemingly empowered, she crumbles when a male colleague gives her a hard time in a Boardroom discussion and when I ask her why, she tells me he makes her feel ‘inadequate.  Like a second-class citizen.’
