Change the conversation
Literally. We hear and experience sexism in so many ways throughout the day. People – women included – interrupt women more often than men in conversations. Challenge yourself today to be conscious of letting a woman finish her thought before you jump in to add your two cents. From comment sections to media coverage of the Olympics, sexism runs rampant online and offline. We can all make a conscious effort to create a more inclusive space.
