Vote for a Woman? Yes, You Can!

Action Against Sexism by Citizen Jane:

Presidential election and family debate, some time back. I mentioned discrimination faced by female candidates: their skills are always questioned and their physical appearance always scrutinised.

My dad argued that there was no more gender discrimination in our country: “Proof is that you can vote for a woman if you want!”.

“But Dad, YOU can also vote for a woman! As long as men don’t imagine voting for a woman, women don’t stand a chance to win elections!”

Got no answer. Come on, Dad, if men have led women for so many centuries, a woman can also lead you one day!
