The first time I watched the video below, it brought tears to my eyes.
No, it wasn’t that time of the month.
I became emotional because the video hit a nerve. I am a woman who has experienced this type of sexism, and I am a mother to a pre-teen girl who is already showing signs of diminished self esteem. Take a look.
I am also a mother to three boys. It is important to teach my daughter to recognize her self worth, but it is even more important that I teach my boys to value girls and women. I take every opportunity to teach my children that their gender doesn’t define who they are and what they are capable of. I teach my boys that they need to respect women and think of each woman they meet as someone’s mother or sister. We need to teach the boys now to avoid the harm to the girls later on.
