They Said, ‘It’s Normal. Stop Making A Fuss.’ Then She Decided It Was Time To Make A Fuss.
In this troubling and then uplifting TEDx talk, Laura Bates explains how one-after-the-other encounters with sexism made her start asking others about their experiences (at 2:35 in the video) and the surprising answers she got. At 6:25, she talks about the now-busy website she created as a place for women to share their stories, and at 9:54, how a recent change in the tone of those stories gives her hope.
Whatever your gender, Bates’ Everyday Sexism site is a fascinating experience and a great place to share stories.
