I don’t understand how we’re already into the sixth month of the year, but here we are I guess! As you’ve (hopefully) seen, each month I like to take a look back at women who accomplished some great things during the previous 30 (or so) days. So since it’s ALREADY June, let’s take a look back at some cool ladies from May!
If the image is what drew you to this post, I don’t know who Sophia is, but I imagine she’s pretty rad. I know we’re more than halfway through April, and I’m so sorry to have deprived you for so long of the wonderful women who did some incredible things last month. If you didn’t know, March was Women’s History Month! So let’s get straight to it.
“If what Aziz Ansari did was assault, then every woman I know has been assaulted.”
Now we’re getting it.
The #MeToo movement inspired an incredible amount of women to come forward with their stories of rape, assault, and harassment. Some of these attacks women spoke about were vicious and intentionally cruel. Others shared how men in positions of power took advantage of them. And others were a little fuzzy. They sounded a little too familiar to so many women and men, poking holes in what so many people believe to be consent.
Aziz Ansari is a perfect example.
