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!
