In the past, I've worked in remote teams with mostly male software developers. For the most part, it's been great - except for when I've gotten steamrolled on Zoom calls.

While my coworkers have typically been kind and I think their values are in a good place, they REALLY talked over me. I've tried to interrupt them back but I'm not going to scream in a meeting to be heard. Do you have any advice for when this happens in future teams? I'd really like to nip this frustrating behavior in the bud without accusing them of sexism right away!
