Feminsts, Speak Up





“@lindasgrant Same boss marked down a female colleague’s appraisal based on his opinion of her clothing, which is fine acc to rules. 2012.”

— Dru_Step

“@lindasgrant 2008 called our male landlord when the boiler broke, he asked me to pass the phone to my boyfriend so he could explain repairs.”

— LisaCSherwood

“@lindasgrant In 2010 job interview I was told explicitly that I’d be hired in spite of my degree, because I ‘looked right’.”

— MissHwrites

“@lindasgrant this all is so sad. Aged 23, female colleague told everyone I must be divorced as I called myself Ms. 2005.”

— inkstainsclaire

Sexism made feminists necessary. Perhaps, when sexism disappears from our daily lives, I’ll consider saying “I’m not a feminist.”

Until then, I’m proud to join with the women who fought for the vote, for the right to spend their own money and be respected as professionals, and say, “I am a feminist!”

1. Yes

Speak up and speak out. I love meeting other women not afraid to call themselves feminists. I'm very verbal about it. Then others are because they know I got their back.

(In case you haven't guessed, I'm one of those potent personality people with a very strong sense of humor)
