We are seeing more and more women taking to the forefront of today’s activism efforts on both sides of the table. Women who are strong, loud, commanding and bossy. These women are making their voices heard and making progress for their causes, but they are often getting pushback. They are being put down by men and others for being “aggressive” or “defensive” or worse. They are being called bitchy and told to “calm down.” How do we, as women, react to that? Do we quiet down, do we stifle ourselves and play nice, or do we find the strength to push past the criticism? Today on Squad Pod, we dive into these questions and try to find some answers.
