Two very sad but interesting perspectives on society’s treatment of women. I’m all in favour of reclaiming words* that have some negative connotations . Can we do it with feminism?

(*Aside: my take on “bossy” is that we should call boys it if they are being it. Much easier than deleting a potentially useful word – if we think it is useful).

What It’s Like Raising Money As A Woman In Silicon Valley

It is not just the perpetrators of abuse who are clueless. Many of the amazing men – some who have invested in our company, others who call me boss – are oblivious to the additional hurdles and harassment I face on a daily basis. These men can be allies, but not if they are left out of the conversation.

Robert Webb: Roll up, roll up, to see a man talking about feminism. What could possibly go wrong?

Feminism isn’t about hating men. It’s about challenging the absurd gender distinctions that boys and girls learn from childhood and carry into their adult lives. It’s an unloved word – we should give it another chance.

I must do the implicit gender test. The racism one is slightly shocking as I have mentioned before.
