Class appears to trump sexism in interrupting

How to Get Ahead as a Woman in Tech: Interrupt Men: "Not only do these three women interrupt everyone, gender- and level-agnostic, they represent three of the four biggest interrupters in the study. Their rates of interruption/hour are, respectively, 35, 34, and 32, with one male colleague in Level E coming in at 34 and literally everyone else in every level showing a lower rate."

ETA: This really isn't a new phenomenon. Anyone who read or saw a good production of Pride and Prejudice should remember Lady Catherine de Burgh, who no one interrupted.
