Exploration of being a woman today

It wasn’t until that my daughters were born that I started to see the importance of being treated, at home and in the work place, as equals.

I’ve faced bullying, misogyny, discrimination and abuse due only to the fact that I am a women – nothing to do with my work/life experience, attitude or talents.

I have started this blog post as a place for links to videos and articles that show the good, bad and ugly of women’s struggle with equality. I will continue to add to it.
