An Open Apology To Smart Women Everywhere

How true. I felt this pressure this week. To appear to be a woman I am not. I am the person I am, and I feel I failed miserably trying to be a more socially acceptable version of woman. It doesn’t make me less intelligent or capable.

I have to overcome bias time and time again. That process takes time, and when all you have is a short period of time to make a better impression how do you do that?

Another thing I have noticed is people will except me, but the next ‘me’ that comes along, and the process starts again. It’s like some people make me the exception rather than excepting that people are different and that this is the norm.

Good read.
