Author Q&A: Which myth about women do you think is the hardest to combat?
Tora: The myth that women are naturally more nurturing It is a notion often pressed onto women through the harmful effects of benevolent sexism.
Mars: The myth that we are born “lesser” in some way because of our womanhood and other personal identities that intersect with and inform our experiences with gender.
Paige: The myth that women--and this is especially in respect to marginalized women--are “already treated equally.” It’s tough to fix a problem when people deny that it exists.
