The Year 2017 and What I'm Looking Forward To
The year 2017 was jam packed full of female empowerment and lending itself to redefining feminism and what it means to be a strong female leader. Feminism used to be (and in some parts of the country, still is) a dirty word. There is this stereotype that a 'feminist' is someone who is generally heavy-set, doesn't shave, and is this blob of a person who spews out absurd comments about equality and women's rights.
As a gender, we've come a long way from gender bias. However, we still have a long way to go. Instead of overt, conscious gender bias, there's now unconscious gender bias. How are we supposed to fight something that may or may not be there?! (Channeling my inner Feminist fight Club here).
Good news is, the wave of 2017 with the #MeToo movement, the women's march on Washington, and those awesome looking pussy cat hats, we've re-opened the door to women's rights and female empowerment. What I'm looking forward to in 2018 is a whole lot of personal development and growth, and a whole lot of reading (or Audible) on gender, leadership, and bias. Here's what's on my book list:
