Everyday our achievements can be diminished by our peers by the simple phrase “you achieved that because you are a girl/woman” or “management/instructors/the boss goes easy on you because you are a girl/woman” or “that was great for a woman”.
Who knows why they say it- but let’s remind ourselves why we keep doing it…

One thought on “Because I’m a girl”
Absolutely! I guess the guys get it in their own way too. Just think of all the men who struggle with emotions because they were told “boys don’t cry” or “don’t be a big girl’s blouse”.
Stereotyping should just stop – full stop! X
