Constance…I am pressing yet another fabulous piece on misogynist culture and our responsibility to take our courage in hand and root out this evil mode of being.
I believe it is more than thought…it has become a lifestyle.
The language and spirit of this piece is tough, but so what? Plow thru it anyway…and men, particularly note the mandate you are issued towards the end of your responsibility to go to work specifically in “men-only” spaces. In my life of consignment to men-only spaces, I was not the only one protesting the treatment of women precisely 4 times, and that is in my lifetime so far to the best of my recollection.
It doesn’t take courage to beat up a girl…but it does take courage to stand up to other men and say no more.
