Skepchick Quickies 4.17
- No one called me a slut – A woman writes about her experience of having an abortion in 1978 and shows just how much we've backslid in 34 years.
- Dear daughter – "So. The world hates you. You are considered the worst thing to be compared to. Throw like a girl. Talk like a girl. Cry like a girl. God forbid we ever be girls."
- My puffy face moment: Viva la sports bra! – I won't spoil the reveal, but I love her eloquence in a time of stress.
- Breaking the digital glass ceiling as a young black woman in tech – "I didn’t understand that technology jobs entailed working and collaborating with people, shaping ideas and engaging in creative problem solving, often outside traditional office walls. I didn’t understand this because I was surrounded by classmates, mostly first generation engineers, who had never been exposed to accomplished women in the field."
