Calling Out Misogyny

“Think very carefully about your sense of self. As a woman in particular we often contract out our sense of self. We let other people take it hostage. It’s everything from what we’re wearing and how we look on an individual day to how we’ve just done the most recent work or education task. We submit to the judgement of others and it’s very important to have a sense of self setting stronger than that. In the world in which we live where you don’t have to be a publicly exposed figure to scroll through social media and see dreadful things said about you, taking that power over your own sense of self is really important and gives you the kind of resilience you need to be on the leadership journey.”
