Women Not Supporting Women Must Stop, Now
I would have gladly bitch-slapped Kirsten Dunst’s character in Hidden Figuresif I’d been around in the 1960s, and I continue to be genuinely perplexed when I see women holding other women back or failing to support fellow women. Our recent presidential election is one example, but smaller, daily examples plague our society everywhere. A female boss or manager doesn’t advocate or support a female team member. A mother doesn’t support her daughter’s dreams because they are “too big” or “too manly.” A wife puts the needs of her husband and children, always, before her own. A college turns its cheek when a female student comes forward with claims of sexual harassment or assault. A judge gives a rapist a slap on the wrist.
And these are just things that happen in America.
