Examples of Sexism

More noticeable for some people than for others, we are surrounded by micro-misogynisms - small actions and differences in treatment based on gender. They are the consequences of the bigger problem, but also part of the structure that keeps misogyny embedded in society. By noticing these little differences, by stopping them, we reduce the gap and take a small step towards more equality.

Check out our below our own articles and books as well as recommended sites, content, audio, video and social media which discuss and provide examples of often unnoticed sexism that occurs every day.
