It takes a while to change perceptions and prejudices. As a teenager I always thought that feminism was an outdated concept and that we did not need to fight for women’s rights anymore, because I felt completely equal at that time. In school the girls would actually always outshine the boys in their achievements. But then I entered the “real” world and learned quickly what it meant to be the only female in a meeting of executives, where you would be cut short or mansplained – I hate that word, but it fits so accurately. We need to be patient and keep on reiterating the message – that women are not less eloquent, less accomplished, less ambitious or less professional than men. And that women are also allowed to be fierce, angry, bossy or anything else they want to be.
