It’s been a different story every day since the Harvey Weinstein news dropped. Whether it’s been additional (and appalling) details of Weinstein and his textbook predator pattern of behavior, to news of other men in power who are now losing their jobs left and right because of the bravery of women coming forward. I just wanted to commend everyone who participated in the #MeToo campaign, and that the follow up conversations surrounding it resonated with me that there are some concrete and immediate responses that I can do personally, and promise to do so:
- Shut down cat-calling when I hear it
- Push back on sexist or condescending “jokes” when I hear them
- Continue to seek out and share women-driven stories and content that I come across

BONUS #WCW CONTENT BECAUSE I MISSED LAST WEEK:
High school senior Claire Jeffress, who not only rocks it on the soccer field, but has also kicked game-winning field goals and extra points for her high school football team in Texas. Oh yeah, and she was voted Homecoming Queen as well.
