Continuing with today’s theme (like there’s a daily theme, ha!) is this gem, which is WAY better than the previous article snippet I posted. Presented without commentary; this woman has a sheer beauty with words.
Every woman knows what I’m talking about. It’s the presumption that makes it hard, at times, for any woman in any field; that keeps women from speaking up and from being heard when they dare; that crushes young women into silence by indicating, the way harassment on the street does, that this is not their world. It trains us in self-doubt and self-limitation just as it exercises men’s unsupported overconfidence.
