It seems even thou we’re in the year 2015 women still get bashed for speaking their mind. Why is it if we say what we’re thinking or feeling and someone doesn’t like it we’re called “Bossy”, “Bitch” or “Rude”? Why can’t we be called “Bold”, “Fearless”, or “Independent”? When men speak their mind they’re admired. They don’t get treated the way women do.
I’m not trying to turn this into a battle of the sexes but I am trying to point out the double standard that clearly still exists. The double standard that makes some women afraid to speak up not only for themselves but for others as well.
We should not be afraid to say what we want. To say what we feel. We are smart women with tons of ideas and we need to be able to express ourselves freely without the ridicule of other people.
Regardless of what other people think or say don’t be afraid to not only think for yourself but also do it out loud so everyone can hear you. You never know, you may inspire someone.
