    I honestly wish women would just stop nude/topless protest.

    I’m all for women making their voices are heard…and showing our breasts doesn’t accomplish that.

    And I seriously cant remember the last time I read about males protesting by showing their penises.

    Krischer’s article in The Atlantic is top notch and expresses many of my frustrations working with teenage girls. The media and the schools really push this “girl power” message but don’t give the girls any sort of vocabulary to describe the sexism they still face.

    Also, hoping the gender discussion is fair and respectful. Good luck, Meghan! You’re one of my sheroes!
