I personally have strong views on sexism myself to be told “you can’t do it, your just a GIRL” is the worst insult that could ever have been said. I can do what I like because girls can do things just as good as men if not better so they can’t put me down because I know that being a young woman is the best thing in the world.
Women naturally get put down because we have feelings but those feeling guide us better that a man’s intuition we can make decisions based on fact and our feelings and more often than not those are the right decisions.
As for men when they get it wrong, we pick up the pieces (though they won’t admit it). Like they say behind every great man there’s a woman (telling him what to do, they’d be lost other wise) but I think its time for us to stand forward and take the credit – after all we do deserve it.
