There’s something very interesting going on: women are speaking out. We’re in the middle of an extraordinary cultural moment. For the first time, we’re having a real, expansive, public conversation about the ways, both subtle and overt, that anti-woman bias – or, let’s be entirely frank here, misogyny – affects women on a day-to-day basis. Conversations among women on social media have led to a profound new willingness to speak openly about those discriminatory or aggressive acts both large and small that affect our ability to function in public life. Women are systematically prevented from fully participating in the world; so much of it is still almost exclusively the domain of men, especially at the upper rungs of power.
