Letters from the community

Hi, I think your website is GREAT! My sister and I had a similar idea for a site, it would have been called “today you made a womon uncomfortable”.

The idea was that often in the moment of being made to feel uncomfortable you’re without the words, action or environment to respond in a way that affirms you and let’s the other person know what they have said/done and why it should never be said/done in the future. It would be so much easier if you could just hand them a card on which you tick a category [] gendered violence, [] street harassment, [] being ignored etc. and/or facts about gendered violence and its many forms.

All that to say it’s great to see this site speak to what I and so many womyn endure and often cannot name everyday. Thank you for creating this site. If there’s any way in which I can support this effort please let me know. Zahra

Dear Zahra,

Thank you so much for your kind words. It’s wonderful to see that there are other women out there who are also thinking of creative ways to get the message out that discrimination against women is a real problem. Each of us, in our own way, can contribute to making a more equitable, free and just society.

And yes, I do need your support; to share the site with your friends and co-workers, to talk about the issues highlighted on the blog, to share your stories and encourage other women and girls to share theirs and to participate in the discussions on twitter and facebook.

Great to have you on board,

Simone
