The most extraordinary of women get all the (deserved) praise. Many of us, however, are mediocre, and the world is a cruel place for women who haven’t extraordinary brilliance, resilience, or persistence. We need a world for that works for those women, too #iwd2019
Much like mediocre men can coast, women need to be able to be mid in peace as well. Even those hashtag-amazing among us have off-days at work or home, and a more just world will see us not punished nearly as cruelly for our slip-ups. #iwd2019
I’ve been thinking about Billie King, who had to win a man Bobby Rogan (or whatever his name was) for women’s tennis to be taken seriously. But what if she’d lost? That would’ve put hundreds more women generations ahead back. Why should that be? #iwd2019
The pressure is entirely too much, and sometimes... you don’t rise to the occasion. Sometimes, you crack under pressure, you fold inwards, you lack strength. Your one failure shouldn’t fine you, or indeed affect another woman’s chances of success. #iwd2019
So today, I wish the whole world of women second chances, the ability to claim the right to not be defined by our or anyone’s mistakes, and the ability to give ourselves permission to be tired and not strong, and the strength to try again. #iwd2019
