Reading the “Other” Side

A stark example to me that men are the dominant sex, is in literature. Women read books by men, about men, but it is few and far between that I see men reading books by women, about women. In an effort to educate myself, I’m reading Roxane Gay’s ‘Bad Feminist‘ in which she highlights this in one of her essays.

I see this replicated in sports (name more 5 female hockey players, WNBA stars, or tennis players that are not lauded for their looks), music, movies (look up the Bechdel Test), oh and “leadership” – both thought and business.
