Look in the comments section of any article or blog geared toward women and you'll see a devastating pattern of behavior that revolves around vitriolic, misogynistic language from both men and women. This isn't a post meant to tear down anyone, nor is it meant to convert anyone to feminism – we're not even talking about that right now because regardless of how you feel about feminism, the fact is that as women, we need to support, uplift, and inspire our sisters. Women are under attack from all sides. We deal with sexual assault and abuse, misogyny, professional barriers, and spiteful behavior on the daily. It's time to stop fighting, at least among ourselves.
Listen to women when they speak to you. Listen to their experiences. Really hear what they're trying to say, especially if their experiences are different from yours. Never shut down a conversation simply because your experience is different.
