The initial email that kicked off the aforementioned chain was one sent on March 20 by a frustrated female employee who, despite the support of her superiors and peers, was unable to secure a promotion in six years, according to Quartz. The employee accused Microsoft of being a "boys club," reports Wired, which also reviewed the emails.

Women in the company subsequently added their own experiences to the email thread. They included stories of a female engineer getting death threats from a male employee at a partner company if she didn't engage in a sex act with him. Another employee said she was asked to sit on a male employee's lap during a business meeting that included Microsoft executives and HR.
