No I don’t think we should give up and take second best, never! But I wouldn’t want to spend my life fighting to be a good ‘woman’ and be recognised because I’m a ‘woman’. The problem is, sexism has become a fear and job companies now employ women for fear of being sexist if they don’t. I’d rather do really well at what I’m good at, try as hard as I can, and succeed because of that, not because I circled -female- on the application form. I know it’s not that easy, believe me, I work in a pub do you honestly think I don’t meet the most condescending, sexist men there? I do and it disgusts me, but I’d rather stand up for myself as a clever, head-strong, ambitious person than a ‘woman’.
